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).

Posting Date:   /   Categories: Preliminary Loss Reports, PMV-4
A 25-year-old Private assigned to 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Kentucky, died in a PMV-4 mishap 10 March 2018 in Mayfield, Kentucky, at 0200 local. The Soldier was operating a PMV-4 when it exited the roadway, traveled sideways through a field and struck a tree. Excessive speed and wet road conditions are reported as contributing factors.

ENGAGEMENT TIPS:

  • Slow down at the first sign of rain, drizzle, or snow on the road as this is when many road surfaces are most slippery because moisture mixes with oil and dust that has not been washed away.

  • Be sure to turn on your low-beam headlights in reduced visibility instances.

  • Heavy rainfall can reduce visibility to zero. Pull over and wait for the rain to subside, or until visibility is restored.

ENGAGEMENT TIPS

As a rider, you can’t be sure that other vehicle operators will see you or yield the right of way. To lessen your chances of a crash occurring, be visible - ride in the best lane position to see and be seen.

Also remember to:

  • Search your path of travel 12 seconds ahead.

  • Identify and separate hazards.

  • Be prepared to act — remain alert and know how to carry out proper crash-avoidance skills.
