Jeremy Renner was ‘run over’ by a 14,330-pound snowplow, says the sheriff

Jeremy Renner was “run over” by an “extremely large piece of snow-removal equipment” weighing “at least 14,3330 pounds,” according to local authorities.

Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said during a press conference Tuesday that the actor’s PistenBully was “stuck” when the “Hawkeye” star attempted to “retrieve” the snowcat and “get [it] moving.”

Although the 51-year-old was “successful,” he was off the machinery and “speaking to a family member” when the PistenBully subsequently “started to roll.”

The sheriff explained, “In an effort to stop the rolling PistenBully, Mr. Renner attempt[ed] to get back into the driver’s seat of the PistenBully. Based on our investigation, it’s at this point that Mr. Renner [was] run over.”

Balaam noted that Renner was not believed “to be impaired at all” during the “tragic accident” and foul play is not suspected.

News broke on Monday that the Oscar nominee was in “critical but stable condition” in Nevada after “experiencing a weather-related incident.”

Renner’s fellow Marvel franchise members shared their support in the comments.

“Speedy recovery buddy. Sending love your way!” Chris Hemsworth wrote, while Chris Evans called his co-star “tough as nails.”

Chris Pratt added, “Continued prayers your way brutha.”

Renner has lived in his remote mansion near Reno for nearly a decade, telling Men’s Health in November 2021 that his home “isn’t a horse ranch [but] … more of a horsepower ranch.”
