What exactly happened to Jeremy Renner?
In a press conference on Jan. 3, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam provided details about Renner’s accident.
According to Balaam, a personal vehicle of Renner’s, which was being driven by a family member, became stuck. The actor subsequently retrieved his PistenBully, a 14,000-pound snowcat.
After successfully towing his own vehicle out of his driveway, Renner got out of the snowcat, and the massive snow groomer started to roll. “In an effort to stop the rolling PistenBully, Mr. Renner attempted to get back into the driver’s seat,” Balaam said. “Based on our investigation, it’s at this point Mr. Renner is run over by the PistenBully.”
“We believe this was a tragic accident,” Balaam said. “This investigation is ongoing. We do not suspect any foul play.” Balaam also noted, “After Mr. Renner was run over by the PistenBully, neighbors ran out to help Mr. Renner.”
He was reportedly airlifted to a local hospital immediately following the incident.
There have been serious updates coming out of the hospital since the actor’s accident, so it’s refreshing to hear him address it firsthand.
