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 18-008 - Pedestrian Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

Posting Date:   /   Categories: Preliminary Loss Reports, Pedestrian
A Specialist assigned to U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, with duty at Landstuhl, Germany, died 9 October 2017 at 0620 local in Landstuhl. The Soldier is believed to have been walking on or along railroad tracks when he was struck by a passing train.

ENGAGEMENT TIPS:

  • All train tracks are private property. Never walk on tracks; it’s illegal trespass and highly dangerous. By the time a locomotive engineer sees a trespasser or vehicle on the tracks it’s too late. It takes the average freight train traveling at 55 mph more than a mile — the length of 18 football fields — to stop. Trains cannot stop quickly enough to avoid a collision.

  • Remember to cross train tracks only at designated pedestrian or roadway crossings, and obey all warning signs and signals posted there.

  • Stay alert around railroad tracks. No texting, headphones or other distractions that would prevent you from hearing an approaching train. Never mix rails and recreation.
