During a ramp jump in Talladega in April 2017, Harvill flew off the ramp and landed so forcefully that his motorcycle tire burst, knocking him off his bike and fracturing his heel. Having been injured, he was unable to attempt the record-breaking motorcycle jump on May 7.

Alex Harvill Death and aftermath

During the Moses Lake Airshow at Grant County International Airport in June 2021, Harvill was set to do a ramp jump to break Robbie Maddison’s record of 351 feet (107 m) set in 2008. It was like jumping from goal post to goal post across an American football field. 

When Harvill was practicing a jump, he smashed into the crest of the dirt ramp, threw off his bike, flew six meters (20 feet) and lost his helmet. Reporters from Spokane’s KREM news station filmed the accident, but did not air it in respect. 

The stunt was dangerous, so medical personnel stood by; so within two minutes of the crash, an emergency medical technician rushed to Harvill. He passed away before he reached the hospital.

Grant County Sheriff’s Office stated on June 18, 2021, that Harvill’s cause of death would be determined by an autopsy. In its findings released on June 19, 2021, the Grant County Coroner’s office concluded that Harvill died from blunt force trauma to the body, likely caused by the blow from the handlebars of the motorbike.
