Aaron was practicing on a local motocross track in Simi Valley, CA in preparation for the AMA National Motocross Series. On the approach to the largest jump on the track, Aaron’s bike malfunctioned, causing him to lose valuable speed at the most crucial part of the launch. As a result, Aaron was flung over the front of the motorcycle while still airborne. Aaron made impact with the ground headfirst, breaking his 4th and 6th cervical vertebrae, and completely shattering the 5th cervical vertebra.
