Several people at the motocross track witnessed the accident and responded to the scene to help. The driver, identified as Rickey E Wooten, 62, of San Tan Valley, suffered severe head trauma during the crash and was unresponsive.
An off‐duty registered nurse stopped her vehicle and performed CPR on Wooten until paramedics arrived. Wooten was unresponsive and flown by air to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Evidence at the scene suggests speed and alcohol were contributing factors in the roll‐over.
