Arizona dealership executive dies following scooter crash on store property

An Arizona dealership executive died after being injured in a crash involving an electric scooter and a pickup on the store’s property.

Andrew Kimmerle, business manager at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Ariz., was riding an electric scooter on the dealership’s lot the morning of Aug. 15 when he collided with a Ford pickup, which was being driven by an unidentified dealership employee, according to the Glendale Police Department.

Glendale Police said Kimmerle, according to witnesses, was riding the scooter at what appeared to be a high rate of speed.

The driver of the truck made a left turn just as Kimmerle was in the area and Kimmerle’s scooter collided with the truck,” Gina Winn, public information officer for Glendale Police, wrote in an email to Automotive News. “The driver of the truck was not speeding and remained on the scene. The driver did not see Kimmerle heading in their direction until the impact took place.”
