Actually radical life extension would increase your chance of dying of old age... Because you would be less likely to die young... And you still wouldn't be immortal... So that leaves death of (or at least AT) old age.

The way I see it: If we managed to extend the average lifetime from 80 to around 150, the terms "young" and "adult" and whatever would probably be moved. Since our aging is reduced, we would probably be as young at age 60 as we are at age 30 today. Given that "old age" is now considered ages between 130 - 150, our life as a working adult person would be longer, thus increasing the probability of dying in for example a car crash.

Of course, if you choose to go by the present definitions, then yes, there is a bigger chance at dying of "old age" (60+)
