Jeremy Renner was trying to save his nephew when he was run over by a snowplow

Jeremy Renner was trying to stop a snowplow from sliding and hitting his nephew when the crash that left him in critical condition happened, according to an incident report from the Nevada Sheriff’s Office.

The redacted report from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office obtained by PKBNEWS said the emergency break was not engaged, which would have stopped the snowplow tractor, as it began to slide sideways.

“The Pistenbully groomer began to slide, forcing Renner to exit the vehicle without applying the emergency brake,” the report said. “Although the Pistenbully had some mechanical problems, it is believed based on our mechanical inspection that the parking brake would prevent the Pistenbully from moving forward. When Renner attempted to stop or steer the Pistenbully away to avoid injury (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and crushed.

It was also noted in the report that the break light was not working and that “mechanical problems may have been a factor”, but the deficiency is not believed to be a factor.

Renner’s nephew was able to look after him until help arrived on the scene.

The 52-year-old actor was airlifted to a hospital near Reno after a neighbor who happened to be a doctor applied a tourniquet to his leg to stop the bleeding.

Renner was moved to the intensive care unit following surgeries he had to undergo following the incident.

He revealed he broke more than 30 bones in the New Year’s Eve incident.

Last week, the two-time Oscar nominee announced he was home from hospital and recovering.
