Hero Jeremy Renner was attempting to conserve his nephew from being struck by his 14,000lb rake, report states

Hero Jeremy Renner was attempting to conserve his nephew from being struck by his 14,000lb Pistunbully snowcat that began moving without any brake when it rolled entirely over him leaving him with 30 damaged bones and continued down the roadway

Actor Jeremy Renner was trying to save his nephew as his snow plow started sliding, when he was pulled under and crushed on New Years’ Day in Nevada.

The parking brake on the plow was not engaged and would have stopped the horrific accident, according to a redacted Nevada sheriff’s office incident report.

The 14,000-pound PistenBully snowcat vehicle started sliding sideways after the 52-year-old Avengers star had used it to pull his grown nephew’s truck out of the snow.

The huge vehicle completely rolled over the Hollywood star, leaving him with 30 broken bones, and continued on down the road. 

‘The Pistenbully snow groomer began sliding causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake,’ the report says, according to CNN, who obtained the report through a public records request.

‘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. 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.’ 

CNN said the report indicates ‘mechanical issues may have been a factor in this accident,’ and notes the brake indicator light inside the plow’s cab was not working.

Renner’s nephew was able to help the actor until emergency responders arrive to the scene, the report says. He was airlifted to hospital, where he was kept for more than two weeks and underwent at least two sugeries.
