The accident occurred after a new year snow storm hit America, leaving up to three feet of snowfall on the ground. 

In a press conference held by Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam, it was said Renner was attempting to move a car that was being driven by a family member when it got stuck in the snow near the star’s home. 

After fixing the situation, the Wind River actor got out of the plougher to speak to the family member.

However, the 14,000 lbs vehicle started to roll on its own, which prompted Renner to attempt to get in the driver’s seat.

Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve told the Reno Gazette Journal on December 2 that she was alerted to the accident on Sunday morning. She and the actor are friends.

She told the news outlet: “He was helping someone stranded in the snow.

“He is always helping others.”

The sheriff explained: “Based on the investigation, it’s at this point that Mr Renner is run over by the PistonBully.

“An eyewitness detailed seeing Mr Renner getting into the PistonBully, and not seeing him again until the PistonBully came to a rest in a pile of snow in front of his driveway.”
