Jeremy Renner’s nephew details the snow plow accident in body cam footage
LOS ANGELES, April 19 (IANS) Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner’s nephew recounts the “Avengers” star’s horrific snow plow accident in new body camera footage released by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department.
On January 1, Renner was run over by a Sno-Cat, a large snow plow that weighed at least 14,330 pounds, while trying to help his 27-year-old nephew, Alex Fries, free a pickup truck in the snow, reports “. miscellaneous”.
When Renner got out of Sno-Cat to check on Fries, the car kept moving. The actor was stuck under the tread of a plow while trying to stop him from hitting Fries.
In footage obtained by ABC News, Fries is heard telling law enforcement, “He came out to tell me something, and that’s when it started attacking me, full force.”
“Where his blood is, that’s where it all happened,” Fries told officers, adding, “He tried to jump on it, onto the[snow plow]and it shattered him.”
In the video, a deputy spotted Renner’s hat under a snow plow.
Renner was hospitalized with blunt force trauma to the chest and bone injuries after the accident, and it was later revealed that he had broken more than 30 bones. Since the accident, the actor has updated fans on his progress on social media, posting a video of himself undergoing physical therapy in February with the caption, “Whatever it takes,” a reference to the movie “Avengers: Endgame.”
Earlier this month, Renner spoke about his recovery in an interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, where he said he remembers “all” the pain: “I was up every moment. It’s exactly what you pictured.”
On April 11, Renner made his first public appearance on the premiere of the Disney+ reality series “Rennervations,” about used vehicle refurbishing for underprivileged communities around the world.
