Meanwhile, new details about his accident have come to light.
TMZ posted notes from the 911 log on Wednesday, revealing Jeremy was “completely crushed” by the snow plow, and the actor could be heard moaning in the background during the call.
The notes also indicate he was bleeding heavily from his head and other wounds. He was said to have “extreme difficulty” breathing.
TMZ adds that the right side of Renner’s chest had collapsed and his torso was crushed.
The Hawkeye actor was airlifted to a hospital after the accident.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office provided some information about his accident during a press conference on Tuesday.
Sheriff Darin Balaam told the press that Renner used his snowplow machine to help a family member get their stuck vehicle out of the snow. Renner stepped out of the PistenBully plow to speak to his family member, but the machine started to “roll.” To stop the rolling, Renner “attempted to get back in the driver seat” of the PistenBully, which then ran him over.
Renner’s PistenBully is now in the possession of the Sheriff’s Office, which is running tests to see if there was any mechanical failure.
