Renner, 51, was critically injured on New Year’s Day after being run over by a snow plow weighing more than 14,000 pounds that he used to tow his car, according to Sheriff Darin Balaam of Washoe County during a news conference.
The actor had been helping a family member who was driving the vehicle and had gotten stuck in the snow, according to the sheriff. After successfully towing the car, he got off the plow to speak to his family member, the sheriff stated. He said at this point, the plow began to roll, and although Renner attempted to get back into the driver’s seat, he was “run over.”
Renner was at his home in Nevada when the accident took place. In a statement, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that deputies responded to “a traumatic injury” around the Mount Rose Highway near Reno on Sunday morning.
“We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” a rep for Renner previously told Variety on Tuesday. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”
