Actor Jeremy Renner was trying to save his nephew as his snow plow started sliding, when he was pulled under and crushed on New Year’s Day in Nevada.

The parking brake on the plow was not engaged and would have stopped the horrific accident, according to a redacted Nevada sheriff’s office incident report.

The 14,000-pound PistonBully snowcat vehicle started sliding sideways after the 52-year-old Avengers star had used it to pull his grown nephew’s truck out of the snow.

The huge vehicle, which ran on tracks, completely rolled over the Hollywood star, leaving him with 30 broken bones, and continued on down the road.

‘The Pistenbully snow groomer began sliding causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake,’ the report says, according to CNN, who obtained the report through a public records request.

‘Although the Pistonbully had some mechanical issues, it is believed based on our mechanical inspection that the parking brake would keep the Pistonbully from moving forward. When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully to avoid injury to (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and ran over.’

CNN said the report indicates ‘mechanical issues may have been a factor in this accident,’ and notes the brake indicator light inside the plow’s cab was not working.

Renner’s nephew was able to help the actor until emergency responders arrived at the scene, the report says. He was airlifted to hospital, where he was kept for more than two weeks and underwent at least two surgeries.

According to the report, which spells out the accident in the most amount of detail available so far, Renner told investigators on January 5 in hospital that the incident began to unfold when he towed his nephew’s truck off his driveway.

He towed the truck, which had become stuck in the snow, onto the street.

It was then that the snowplow began “sliding sideways,” he told investigators, at which point it began to roll down the hill.

At this point, the report says Renner jumped out of the plow’s cabin, but quickly realized the vehicle was on course to directly hit his nephew.

‘He feared the Pistenbully was going to hit (his nephew), so he decided to attempt to stop or divert the Pistenbully,’ the report says, according to CNN.

In order to get back into the cabin, Renner had to climb onto its moving tracks. As he did so, he was ‘immediately pulled under the left side track,’ the account says.

In a 911 call, also obtained by CNN, the caller is heard saying that the actor had been ‘completely crushed under a large snowcat’.

A neighbor, who placed the phone call, says that Renner was having difficult breathing and was starting to drift off to sleep. The 911 operator can be heard telling the caller that he needs to be kept awake.

The neighbor explains that they have wrapped him in blankets, but says ‘the right side of his chest … collapsed – upper torso is crushed.’

In separate audio released to TMZ last week, Renner could be heard moaning repeatedly in the background of the emergency call as the neighbor, who remained nameless, explained his injuries.

Friends and family close to the ‘Bourne Legacy’ star said he ‘almost died’ waiting for help and that it could take up to ‘two years’ for him to recover from the blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.
