A paratrooper with the 11th Airborne Division died in a motorcycle crash in Miami Township, Ohio, officials from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson said in a statement released Thursday, June 30.

Sgt. Seth P. Vision, 22, was an Army cavalry scout from Springboro, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland and Dayton. He was assigned to Alpha Troop, 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 11th Airborne Division at JBER in Anchorage, Alaska.

The motorcycle crash happened around 2:15 a.m. Saturday, June 25, in Miami Township, the Dayton Daily News reported. After making a turn, Vision crossed into the opposite lane, hit the curb, and was ejected from the bike, the outlet reported.

Local police and the Army Criminal Investigation Division are investigating the crash, according to the statement from JBER.

“Sgt. Vision was a phenomenal friend, leader, and paratrooper,” Lt. Col. Jake Hughes, 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry Regiment commander, said in a statement provided to Coffee or Die Magazine. “He was known throughout the Denali Squadron as a consummate professional who could always be counted on to complete the mission. Seth’s optimistic approach to life and soldiering was contagious, and he positively impacted everyone around him.”

Vision was visiting Ohio for a career fair, JBER officials said.
