US Air Force Test Pilot Aaron Frey Dies in Death Valley Accident
DEATH VALLEY, CA (July 12, 2021) – Major Aaron Frey was killed in a traffic accident in Death Valley Monday evening, July 5.
The accident happened around 7:50 p.m. on Highway 190 near Towne Pass. According to the California Highway Patrol, Frey was driving his Toyota Tundra pickup westbound on the highway when he veered onto the shoulder. The vehicle then skidded across the roadway and overturned.
Another motorist who came across the wreckage drove three miles to Panamint Springs Resort to call 911 because of the poor cell phone coverage in the area.
Death Valley National Park rangers and a CHP officer responded to the scene and found Frey had sustained fatal injuries. They pronounced him dead at the scene.
The CHP said that Frey was the only occupant of the vehicle and was not wearing a seat belt.
Frey was a 42-year-old from Evergreen, Colorado. He was a reserve airman. He was assigned to the 370th Flight Test Squadron and served as an F-16 test pilot instructor and an F-13 test pilot.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Aaron Frey.
