Police Report of Recent Snow Plow Accident Sheds Light On Jeremy Renner’s Heroic Actions 

By Movieguide® Contributor

New details emerged from a recent police report from the snow plow accident that left Jeremy Renner hospitalized and in critical condition. 

Renner was trying to save his adult nephew from being hit by the plow when he was crushed, the sheriff’s incident report revealed. 

The reason for the accident? The machine started to slide sideways after Renner attempted to use the plow to get his nephew’s car out of the snow. He jumped out of the plow without activating the emergency brake. 

“When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully to avoid injury to (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and run over,” the incident report read.

Renner’s nephew helped him as they waited for medical assistance and the actor was airlifted to a trauma center. 

He sustained serious injuries to his legs and chest, breaking more than 30 bones, and has undergone multiple surgeries. Renner returned home earlier this month after spending two weeks in the hospital.

Movieguide® previously reported on the accident:

Actor Jeremy Renner was rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition after a snow plow accident, Deadline first reported.

The AVENGERS actor, 51, reportedly suffered injuries “after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today.”

“His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care,” one representative said.

The actor was clearing snow out of his driveway when he got out of the plow. It started to move on its own and ran over Renner, injuring his chest and legs. 

Renner has since posted a selfie in the hospital, as well as a video of his sister and mother giving him a “spa day” while he recovers in the ICU.

“ICU spa moment to lift my spirits,” he captioned the video. “Thank you mama. Thank you sister. Thank all for you. For your love.”

His selfie had a similar caption, thanking supporters for their “kind words.”

“I send love to you all,” Renner wrote
