Jeremy Renner’s Injury: What Happened To The Actor?
The incident occurred when Jeremy Renner was at his residence in Tahoe and was spending time with family during the New Year’s holiday when a friend’s car got stuck in the snow. Renner used a Sno-Cat—a snow-removing vehicle that weighs almost 14.5 thousand pounds—to clear his friend’s path.
When he was successful in removing the vehicle from the snow, he got out to inspect, but it started rolling. He jumped into the driver’s seat, but it ran over him as he tried to stop it.
