Kirkland Fatal Collision

Sedona AZ (December 28, 2017) – On December 22, 2017, Aaron Segura, 26, of Kirkland, Arizona was killed in a single vehicle rollover collision.

Around 7:30 in the evening, YCSO deputies were dispatched to Wagner Road near milepost 7 outside of Kirkland regarding a single vehicle collision. The reporting party stated that a man had been thrown from a pickup and was not breathing. The party did not witness the collision, but came across the scene on her way home. Southern Yavapai Fire Department personnel arrived and relieved a deputy already doing CPR on Segura. Unfortunately, Segura did not survive and was pronounced dead shortly thereafter at the scene.

Deputies reported that Segura’s vehicle, a white 2004 GMC pickup, was traveling south on Wagner Road toward the community known as Walnut Grove. Preliminary indications are that the pickup left the roadway under excessive speed and drove on the shoulder for some distance before tire marks are seen leading back to the roadway. Segura then apparently “over corrected” his steering, causing the pickup to slide and rollover several times before ejecting him onto the roadway. Deputies did find alcoholic beverages in the pickup and also detected the odor of alcohol on Segura’s person. As a result, impairment along with excessive speed, could also be a factor in the cause of this crash.
Indications of seat belt use, if any, have not been determined.
