On New Year’s Day, Renner was crushed by a snowcat near his home in the Mt. Rose Highway area of Reno, Nevada. According to a redacted Washoe County Sheriff’s Office incident report, obtained by ET, Renner towed his nephew’s vehicle after it got stuck in the snow. In the process, the snowcat began to move, and Renner tried to prevent his nephew from being hurt. 

"Once he was off the Pistenbully, he realized it was heading directly toward (his nephew)," the report read, per CNN. "He feared the PistenBully was going to hit (his nephew), so he decided to attempt to stop or divert the PistenBully." According to CNN, citing the report, Renner attempted to access the snow groomer's cab by climbing onto the moving track, but was "immediately pulled under the left side track." 

"The Pistenbully rolled over him and continued down the road,” the report stated, per CNN. "He laid on the ground and focused on his breathing while (his nephew and others) rendered aid to him until medical personnel arrived on scene." 

As a result, Renner suffered life-threatening injuries and had to undergo emergency surgery. Renner was in the hospital for 14 days. During his time, the actor celebrated his 52nd birthday by sharing an update with his fans.
