When Jeremy Renner fell into a snowplow to save his nephew, he was unable to save him ...

New information have surfaced about a horrifying incident that nearly cost Jeremy Renner his life. On New Year's Eve, the 52-year-old was hit by a 14,330-pound snowplow at his home in Reno, Nevada.

Renner had just retrieved his nephew's truck out of the snow when the plow started to slide sideways and began rolling down a hill towards his nephew, according to a redacted Washoe County Sheriff's Office report obtained by CNN on Tuesday. He then jumped out of the snowcat before he was able to take the emergency break, and was "immediately pulled under the left side track" as he attempted to reenter the cab.

The snowplow had also had some mechanical problems, such as the brake indicator light inside the cab not working, but that the parking restriction would have prevented the vehicle from continuing to move forward, according to the study. Alcohol impairment was also excluded.

Despite the terrible accident and severeness of his injuries, Renner has managed to remain largely in good spirits, including his fellow MCU star Chris Evans, his Mayor of Kingstown co-star Hugh Dillon, and Colin Farrell.

Renner also managed to thank fans for their best wishes while celebrating his birthday in the ICU earlier this month.
