Jeremy Renner was trying to save nephew when he was run over by snowplough

The Marvel actor was rushed to hospital on New Year's Day after suffering blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries in an accident involving his personal snowplough near his home in Reno, Nevada. According to a redacted Washoe County Sheriff's Office report obtained by CNN, Renner used his PistenBully machine, which runs on a track, to pull his grown nephew's truck out of the snow. After towing the vehicle to a street, the snowplough began "sliding sideways" down a hill, at which point Renner jumped out of his PistenBully to save his nephew.
