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 20-061 - PMV-4 Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

A 23-year-old Specialist assigned to Fort Hood, Texas, died in a PMV-4 mishap 26 June 2020 in Sunnyvale, Texas, at 0230 local. The Soldier was riding as a passenger in a private motor vehicle when it was involved in a two-vehicle accident. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Seat belt use for the Soldier and the driver of the vehicle is unknown at this time; however, the driver is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol at the time of the mishap. The mishap is under investigation.

Since 2016, the Army has lost an average of 34 Soldiers a year to off-duty PMV-4 mishaps. This mishap is the 24th off-duty PMV-4 fatality of FY20. While the Army is below PMV-4 fatalities from this time last year, this is another example of how risk increases after midnight.
