Fort Worth, TX – Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) Detention Corporal Aron Iseman died in a single-vehicle crash while driving home from work in February.
The incident occurred on Highway 287 near Little Road in Arlington at approximately 7:10 a.m. on Feb. 24, the TCSO said in a press release later that day.
Detention Cpl. Iseman, 34, was driving home after his shift at the Tarrant County Jail when his vehicle went off the roadway and rolled multiple times.
Witnesses said the detention corporal’s Subaru Outback veered across the highway, traveling from the left lane and off of the roadway before crashing into a metal sign, KXAS reported.
His vehicle was heavily damaged in the crash, resulting in Arlington firefighters having to extricate him from the wreckage, the TCSO said.
Detention Cpl. Iseman was rushed to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, where he succumbed to his injuries at 8:39 a.m.
The Arlington Police Department (APD) is handling the ongoing investigation into the deadly crash.
“The Arlington Police Department sends its heartfelt condolences to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the employee’s family and friends,” the APD said in a statement to KXAS.
The TCSO confirmed Detention Corporal Iseman’s death in a tweet on Feb. 24.
“We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of one of our own, Detention Corporal Aron Iseman,” the post read. “We send many thoughts and prayers for his family during this time.”
A procession of 70 law enforcement vehicles escorted his body from the hospital to a local funeral home, KDFW reported.
Detention Cpl. Iseman joined the U.S. Army and served two tours in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan prior to being hired by the TCSO in 2018.
He leaves behind his wife, Nathalie, who is pregnant with the couple’s son.
“He was my best friend. He was my ride or die. My protector. My saving grace,” his widow told KDFW. “He will never know how much I really needed him.”
Detention Cpl. Iseman will be laid to rest on March 11, according to his obituary.
Tonight, we are honoring Corporal Aron Iseman.
The 34yo died in a single vehicle crash Friday on the way home from his overnight shift at the Tarrant Co. Jail. His wife, who is 17 weeks pregnant, is now planning his funeral.
