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 18-029 - PMV-4 Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

Posting Date:   /   Categories: Preliminary Loss Reports, PMV-4
A Staff Sergeant assigned to 193rd Infantry Brigade, Fort Jackson, South Carolina, died in a PMV-4 mishap 29 December 2017 at 0127 local in Columbia, South Carolina. The Soldier was attempting to pass a vehicle on a two-lane road when he collided with an oncoming vehicle and exited the roadway. He was unrestrained and ejected from his vehicle. Speed and unlawful passing are suspected as contributing factors in the mishap.

ENGAGEMENT TIPS

  • Passing is illegal and unsafe when your line-of-sight is restricted or limited by a curve, hill, or weather conditions; cross-traffic is present; when there is a solid yellow line on your side of the roadway; or a school bus is loading or unloading children.

  • Seat belts can save lives. Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45 percent, and cut the risk of serious injury by 50 percent. Seat belts also help prevent drivers and passengers from being ejected during a crash.
