A 26-year-old Sergeant assigned to Fort Drum, New York, died in an on-duty PMV-2 mishap 27 March 2024 at 1250 local. The Soldier was conducting an annual check ride when he lost control and impacted the guardrail. New York State Police (NYSP) and emergency medical personnel responded and pronounced the Soldier dead at the scene. The Soldier was licensed and had completed the motorcycle foundation training and was wearing personal protection equipment. Speed or use of alcohol are currently unknown. The unit/safety points of contact are waiting for NYSP to release its final report.

Since FY19, the Army has lost an average of one Soldier a year to on-duty PMV-2 mishaps. This mishap was the first on-duty PMV-2 fatality of FY24 (along with 13 off-duty PMV-2 fatalities) and above the number of on-duty PMV-2 fatalities for the same time last year.
