We are getting just a few more details about Jeremy Renner’s freak snowplow accident.
ICYMI, Jeremy Renner — a.k.a. “Hawkeye” from The Avengers — was apparently run over by a snowplow while at home in Reno, Nevada.
Reports first surfaced that Jeremy was in a “weather related accident.” We didn’t know very many details besides the fact that he had been rushed to the hospital, and was in critical condition.
As time went on, we slowly started to get a couple more details.
He had lost a lot of blood. He had to have 2 surgeries due to the severity of his injuries.
Last night, Jeremy even posted a photo on Instagram, thanking his fans for all the kind words of encouragement.
Today, we are learning a bit more about what happened in the seconds leading up to the accident.
Jeremy had been helping a relative (or friend) move a car that had gotten stuck in snow on his property.
See, Jeremy owns a PistenBully snowcat — the same kind of snow groomer that ski resorts use to remove snow and groom their trails.
It’s one big muther of a snowplow — seven freaking tons of big snowplow.
Great if you are needing to remove snow. Not so great if it decides to malfunction and run over your leg.
So, Jeremy helped the car get free from the snow, and then he jumped out to talk to the relative.
It was at this point that the PistenBully started to roll.
An eyewitness detailed seeing Mr. Renner getting into the PistenBully and not seeing him again until the Pistenbully came to rest in a pile of snow in front of his driveway.Sheriff Darin Balaam
Foul Play is not expected in Jeremy’s tragic accident.
It was just a freak accident, and thank goodness witnesses were present to help.
Our thoughts continue to go out to Jeremy at this difficult time.
