On June 6, 2019, at 1102 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA28-161, N9476R, was substantially damaged while landing at the Carroll County Regional Airport (DMW), Westminster, Maryland. The student pilot was not injured. The instructional flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. No flight plan was filed for the flight that originated from Montgomery County Airpark (GAI), Gaithersburg, Maryland at 0930.

According to the student pilot, he was practicing full stop landings at DMW when the accident occurred. He said during the first full stop landing the airplane's nose wheel bounced during landing roll. The second landing was normal, but on the third landing the nose wheel bounced and he "added power" to regain control of the airplane. The airplane veered off the left side of the runway and down an embankment before coming to a stop.

Examination of the airplane by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector revealed substantial damage to the firewall and engine mount.
