Jeremy Renner's Snowplow Accident

Renner detailed in a report that he was operating his Pistenbully to tow his Ford Raptor after it got stuck on his driveway due to the snow, aiming to move it onto the street with less snow.

His nephew, Alexander Fries, helped him with the car, disconnecting the tow chain from the Pistenbully.

However, when Renner drove the snowplow a little and turned it around, he noticed it was starting to slide. Hence, he tried to stop it so that it wouldn't hit Fries.

"The Pistenbully snow groomer began sliding, causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake," the report read, per E! News.

"Although the Pistenbully had some mechanical issues, it is believed, based on our mechanical inspection, that the parking brake would keep the Pistenbully from moving forward," it continued. "When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully to avoid injury to Fries, he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and was run over. Impairment was not believed to be a factor in this incident."
