Craziest Ironic Deaths of All Time - Volume 1

Ironic deaths are the stuff of legend when it comes to the craziest deaths imaginable. For starters, the owner of the Segway died in a Segway accident and a Green Party candidate was killed by an SUV. Some of the most ironic deaths of recent memory have been gathered here in this ironic death list.

Ironic deaths are both easy and hard to define; unlike the Alanis Morissette song, there's a little more subtlety to calling a freaky death "ironic". Some of the most tragic deaths in history, however, were true cases of irony and life finding a way to turn death into something simultaneously funny and fascinating.

Sure, a lot of funny deaths in history are extremely tragic and unfortunate, but very few are actually "ironic." Feel free to debate the irony of these freaky deaths and ironic passings and if you can't get enough of the craziest deaths ever reported, check out the list of most ironic deaths in history - volume 2.

    Owner of the Segway Company Dies in a Segway Accident

    »
    Jimi Heselden was the owner of the Segway company and an avid user of the two-wheeled motorized scooters the company produces. A multi-millionaire, he owned an estate in the countryside of England, and there would ride the rugged country version of the Segway. That particular contraption contained such luxuries as a mudguard and extra wide tires with deep treads for going off the road, 'cause there's nothing like off-roading on a scooter.

    But one day, while going "off-roading" on the rugged Segway, he literally went off the road and drove off a 80 foot cliff down to his death.
