Away from the racing action, the 2022 Dakar Rally has one fatality on its final day.

On the liaison stage, an accident occurs between an escort vehicle and a truck not involved in the rally, resulting in the death of a 20-year-old Frenchman. The person concerned was the mechanic of a vehicle that took part in the Classic classification for historic vehicles. His passenger, a Belgian, was injured and taken to hospital.

In 2020, two motorcyclists lost their lives during the rally, and in 2021 one motorcyclist. In total, the Dakar has claimed 71 fatalities among participants, spectators and bystanders since 1978.
