Jeremy Renner was "run over" by an “extremely large piece of snow-removal equipment” that weighed “at least 14,3330 pounds,” Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam confirmed during a press conference on Tuesday, January 3, of the star's recent hospitalization.

"We do not believe Mr. Renner was impaired at all and we believe this is a tragic accident,” the sheriff continued of the Hawkeye star's near-death experience in Nevada on Sunday morning, January 1.

“We don’t suspect any foul play,” he continued, noting that the investigation is still ongoing while wishing Renner a "full and speedy recovery."

Balaam's press conference came right around the time Renner decided to reach out to fans with a health update of his own, writing, "thank you all for your kind words. 🙏. I'm too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all," alongside a selfie from his hospital bed via Instagram on Tuesday evening.
