Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

About Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

Preliminary Loss Reports provide leaders with awareness of Army loss and highlight potential trends that affect combat readiness. Within 72 hours of a loss, PLRs provide a synopsis of the incident: unit, date of loss, description of the activity at the time of the death. PLRs do not identify root causes of an accident, as the investigation is ongoing. Further details will be available later on RMIS (account required).

PLR 20-027 - PMV-4 Mishap Claims Two Soldiers' Lives

Two Privates assigned to Fort Hood, Texas, died in a PMV-4 mishap 1 February 2020 in Austin, Texas, at 1913 local. One of the Soldiers was operating his PMV when he crossed the median into oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle. His vehicle flipped into a nearby culvert, killing him and the Soldier riding as a passenger. The civilian driver of the other vehicle also died. The mishap is under investigation.

Since FY16, the Army has lost an average of 34 Soldiers a year to PMV-4 mishaps. This was the 10th fatal off-duty PMV-4 mishap of FY20, which is barely below the 13 PMV-4 fatalities for the same time period in FY19. PMV-4 mishaps continue to be the biggest killer of our Soldiers.
