Hollywood star Jeremy Renner was trying to stop his snowplow from sliding and hitting his adult nephew when the actor was pulled under and crushed by the vehicle on January 1

Mr Renner was severely injured and broke 30 bones when his own snow plow ran him over at his Nevada home on New Year's Day.

The 'Avengers' star was released from the hospital last week after spending more than two weeks in the intensive care unit (ICU).

The 52-year-old was using the snowplow to pull his nephew's car out from heavy snow at his Nevada home. When the vehicle, which runs on a track, began "sliding sideways," Mr Renner exited the snowplow without initiating the parking brake, officials said.

Renner then attempted to divert the snowplow by jumping onto its track and was “immediately pulled under the left side track,” the report notes.

It said that Mr Renner's nephew was able to help the actor until help arrived. "He laid on the ground and focused on his breathing while (his nephew and others) rendered aid to him until medical personnel arrived on scene," the report stated.

The 'Hawkeye' star was airlifted to the hospital, where underwent at least two surgeries. He broke more than 30 bones in the incident, he said. Last week, Mr Renner even posted a photo on Instagram.

The actor underwent emergency surgeries the next day. He was discharged after two weeks and undergone physical therapy, he revealed on his social media.
