The 52-year-old had pulled out his grown nephew’s stranded truck on New Year’s Day in Lake Tahoe, but the snow plow slid sideways and pulled him under, according to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office report obtained by CNN.

“He feared the Pistenbully was going to hit (his nephew), so he decided to attempt to stop or divert the Pistenbully.”

Renner exited the vehicle without engaging the emergency brake, which could have stopped the vehicle, the report says.

“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,” the report says.

When attempting to re-enter the cab, Renner had to climb onto the snowplows’s track, which was in motion. He was “immediately pulled under the left side track,” the report reads.

The report adds the brake light inside the snowcat’s cab was not working, and that “mechanical issues may have been a factor in this accident”

It notes that impairment was not a factor.

911 call logs of the incident reveal the two-time Oscar nominee had been moaning in pain for more than 15 minutes and remained semi-conscious while a neighbour pleaded for life-saving assistance to be provided.

Friends of the actor have said it could take two years for him to recover, and he’s aware “he almost died out there,” according to Radar Online.

The actor announced last week that he left the hospital and is recovering at home.
