Jimi Heselden, the multi-millionaire owner of Segway Inc., which makes the famous Segway personal transport system, died Sunday in a tragic accident involving a Segway personal transport system. He plunged 80 feet into a limestone river near his home.

Heselden's net worth was estimated at around £166 million. He bought Segway Inc. last December.

Dean Kamen invented the Segway, which debuted in 2001 and took the world by storm-- though it's also provided all manner of snark bait.

As much as my knee-jerk reaction to any lawsuit is one of revulsion, I'm not particularly opposed to this one. Ms. Gosule signed a contract with AAA; she forked over $100 dollars, and AAA promised to provide a service. AAA failed to provide that service....
