Much like his Marvel counterpart Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner is also a hero in real life as details are revealed about the actor’s recent snowplow accident that saw him crushed while towing his nephew’s truck.
CNN acquired a copy of the redacted Washoe County Sheriff’s Office police report where it’s learned “the Pistenbully snow groomer began sliding causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake.”
After towing the vehicle, Renner got out of the snowplow, but didn’t set the emergency brake, and then saw the snowplow moving toward his nephew, where Renner attempted to intervene and save his nephew but he was pulled under the vehicle’s track and run over.
“Although the Pistenbully had some mechanical issues, it is believed based on our mechanical inspection that the parking brake would keep the Pistenbully from moving forward,” states the report. “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 report adds, “Once he was off the Pistenbully, he realized it was heading directly toward (his nephew). He feared the Pistenbully was going to hit (his nephew), so he decided to attempt to stop or divert the Pistenbully.”
