“Pistenbully’s snowplow began skidding and Renner was forced to exit the vehicle before deploying the emergency brake,” the report, obtained by CNN through a public records request, concluded.
“While the Pistenbully has some mechanical issues, based on our mechanical inspection, it is believed that the parking brake will prevent the Pistenbully from moving forward.
“While Renner attempted to stop or divert Pistenbully to avoid injury to (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and fled.”
The report also states that the brake indicator light in the snowcat’s cabin was not working and “mechanical problems may have contributed to this accident.”
The nephew was able to help Renner until help arrived, the report said.
Renner was airlifted to the hospital, where he stayed for more than two weeks, underwent at least two surgeries and was treated in the intensive care unit.
The report also did not believe impairment was a factor in the incident. CNN has reached out to Renner’s representatives for comment.
The moving trail pulled the actor under, the report said
The incident happened on New Year’s Day, when Renner towed his nephew’s truck out of the actor’s driveway after it got stuck in the snow, he told investigators when he was hospitalized on Jan. 5.
After pulling the truck onto the street, the snowplow began “sliding sideways” and then “rolled down the hill,” Renner said.
That’s when Renner jumped off the snowcat, he told investigators.
“Once he got out of Pistenbully, he realized he was heading straight for (his nephew),” the report said.
“He was afraid that Pistenbully was going to hit (his nephew), so he tried to stop or redirect Pistenbully.”
To get into the snowplow’s cab, Renner had to climb onto its moving path and “immediately pulled under the road on the left side,” the report states.
A 911 call log obtained by CNN said Renner was “completely crushed under the large snowcat (car)” and had “extreme (difficulty) breathing,” with “the right side of his chest collapsed — upper torso crushed.” .
“Pistenbully rolled over him and continued on his way,” the report said.
“While he was lying on the ground and paying attention to his breathing, (his nephew and others) helped him until the paramedics arrived at the scene.”
Renner, who plays superhero archer Hawkeye in the Marvel film and TV Universe, said he broke more than 30 bones during the incident.
“Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this special new year,” she said.
“It was born out of tragedy for my entire family and I started to connect love that can move quickly ❤️ I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughts for me and my family…. Much love and thanks to you all.
“These 30+ broken bones will mend and strengthen as the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all.”
