Jeremy Renner got hit by a snowplow
Jeremy Renner, known for his role as the superhero Falcon Eye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, was hit by a snowplow and injured while trying to save his nephew.
Renner told investigators while in the hospital that the incident happened after he tried to tow his nephew’s baby truck, which was stuck in the snow. He was able to get his nephew’s car, but after a while, the snow truck the actor was in began to “slide” and “roll down the slope.” Renner jumped out of it without turning on the emergency brake.
“As soon as he got out of Pistenbully’s car, he realized it was heading straight for the baby. He feared Pistenbully might hit his nephew, so he decided to try to stop or change the direction of the car,” the police report said.
Renner was unable to stop the car and was pulled under the tracks. The in-cab braking indicator did not work, so “mechanical problems may have been a factor in the accident.”
The incident involving Renner occurred in early January near Reno, Nevada. After the accident, Renner was airlifted to a hospital. Renner later reported that he suffered more than 30 broken bones.
Jeremy Renner is 52 years old. He is known for his roles in The Hurt Locker, 2008, The Town, 2010, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, 2012 and the Marvel film franchise including Thor, 2011 and The Avengers, 2012. Renner has been nominated twice for an Academy Award.
