Jeremy Renner was crushed by a snowmobile while trying to protect his nephew

Actor Jeremy Renner was trying to stop his “snowcat” (a vehicle used in the snow) from hitting his nephew when he was pulled under the crushing cleaning machine on New Year’s Day, according to an incident report from the Office of the Sheriff of Washoe County.

The “snowcat” began to slide sideways after the star of “Avengers” used it to pull his nephew’s truck out of the snow, and the handbrake, which was not on, would have stopped him, according to the edited incident report filed Friday.

The document was obtained by CNN on Tuesday (24) through a public records request.

“The Pistenbully snowplow began to slide, causing Renner to exit the vehicle without applying the emergency brake,” reads the report’s conclusion.

“Although the Pistenbully had some mechanical issues, it is believed, based on our mechanical inspection, that the brake would prevent it from moving forward. When Renner tried to stop or deflect the Pistenbully to avoid injury to [seu sobrinho]he was pulled under the vehicle across the road and run over.”

The report also notes that the brake indicator light inside the vehicle’s cabin was not working and that “mechanical issues may have been a factor in this accident”.

Renner was airlifted to the hospital, where he remained for more than two weeks, undergoing at least two surgeries and receiving treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU).

An emergency call log obtained by the CNN said Renner was “completely crushed under a large snowcat [veículo]” and he had “extreme [dificuldade] to breath”.

“The right side of the chest is collapsed – the upper torso is crushed.”

report details

The incident occurred on New Year’s Day, when Renner towed his nephew’s pickup truck out of the actor’s driveway after it got stuck in the snow, he told investigators while hospitalized on Jan. 5, according to the incident report. .

After successfully towing the truck out of the snow and onto the street, Renner said the plow began “sliding sideways” and then “started rolling downhill.” At that point, Renner told investigators that he jumped out of the snowplow.

“Once he was out of Pistenbully, he realized he was going directly to [seu sobrinho]”, says the report. “He feared Pistenbully was going to crash [seu sobrinho]so decided to try to stop or divert the Pistenbully”.

To get into the snowplow’s cabin, Renner had to step onto the moving track, the report notes.

When he jumped into the lane, the report says that was when Renner was “immediately pulled under the left side lane”.

“The Pistenbully ran over him and continued down the road,” says the report. “He lay down on the floor and concentrated on his breathing while [seu sobrinho e outros] helped him until the medical team arrived at the scene”.

Renner, who plays the superhero Hawkeye in the Marvel movie and TV, says he broke more than 30 bones in the incident.

He posted a photo on Instagram last week with a caption that read: “I want to thank everyone for the messages and consideration. Much love and gratitude to all of you. Those 30+ bones will mend, grow stronger, as the love and bond with family and friends deepens.”

Disability is not believed to have been a factor in the incident, the report concludes.
