The incident report was released by the Nevada Sheriff’s Office responding to Renner’s home on New Year’s Eve. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the actor was recently released from hospital. after being monitored by doctors for more than 2 weeks and having to undergo multiple surgeries.
Renner was crushed by a 14,300 lb snowplow off his property. The new report revealed that Renner was trying to stop the machine from slipping and hitting his adult nephew.
The report said that the Hand brake on the machine was not in place.
“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 issues, 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.
The report said the brake light inside the machine was not working and that “mechanical problems may have been a factor in this crash.”
Renner’s nephew stayed with the actor until the rescuers arrived.
The actor was airlifted to hospital where he was treated in the intensive care unit. The A-list star suffered blunt force trauma to his chest and orthopedic injuries.
“The right side of Jeremy’s chest was crushed and his upper torso collapsed. He also had a bad bleeding head wound and a leg wound.
Another insider said: ‘He has had two surgeries so far and will likely need more in the coming weeks for his leg,’ a source said last week. “Doctors tend to space out operations to allow time for the body’s natural healing process to kick in, and that’s the case here.”
