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 20-029 - PMV-4 Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

A 23-year-old Specialist assigned to Fort Wainwright, Alaska, died in a PMV-4 mishap 7 February 2020 on Parks Highway, Alaska, at 1540 local. The Soldier was operating his PMV, with two other Soldiers as passengers, when he collided head on with a civilian F-350. All three Soldiers were pinned inside the vehicle. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The two passengers were transported to the local hospital for unspecified non-fatal injuries. One of the injured Soldiers has been treated and released, while the other remains in serious condition. 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 11th fatal off-duty PMV-4 mishap of FY20 and 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.
