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 20-050 – GMV Mishap Claims One Army Civilian's Life

A Department of the Army Civilian (DAC) assigned to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, died in a government motor vehicle (GMV) mishap 2 June 2020 on the installation at 1400 local. Initial reports state two employees were performing crane operations. While lifting a metal component off a Load Handling System vehicle, the chain holding the load shifted, causing the boom to bounce upward and possibly strike overhead power lines. The DAC was seen falling to the ground. The crane operator administered CPR until emergency medical services personnel arrived and transported the DAC to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The USACRC is leading a safety investigation into the mishap.

Since 2016, the Army has experienced an average of 19 GMV mishaps per year. This mishap is the ninth GMV mishap of FY20 and below the number of similar mishaps during the same time period last year.
