Jeremy Renner Screamed “Not Today Motherf*cker” Right Before He Was Crushed By The 14,000 Pound Snow Plow

Jeremy Renner

Tough as nails.

By now, it’s well known that Mayor Of Kingstown actor Jeremy Renner was crushed by a 14,000 pound snow plow near his home in Mount Rose, Nevada, all while trying to stop it from rolling backwards towards his nephew.

He had to be airlifted to the hospital, where it was revealed he suffered more than 30 broken bones, including significant injuries to his chest, leg, and head, causing him to lose a lot of blood.

He crushed 15% of the bones in his body including 8 ribs broken in 14 places, right knee, right ankle broken, left leg broken, the left ankle broken, right clavicle broken, right shoulder broken, face, eye socket, the jaw, the mandible broken, a collapsed lung and a pierced liver.

Yeah… rough shape.

However, Renner’s recovery process has been ahead of schedule, and he was able to head back home later in January.

Since then, he posted a video of him walking on a specialized stabilizing, anti-gravity treadmill, and just this week, began walking upright with a walker.

“It’s less weight, it’s like having a cane…”

Today, he did an exclusive ABC interview with Diane Sawyer where the detailed the accident, his injuries, the support from his family,

They released the first teaser last week, showing a clip of Renner saying:

“I’d do it again… Yeah, I’d do it again because it was going right at my nephew.

I chose to survive. It’s not going to kill me. No way… I’ve lost a lot of flesh and bone in this experiment, but I’ve been refueled and refilled with love and titanium.”

He also admitted that there was a time where he truly thought he wasn’t going to survive.

You can hear him say to Sawyer:

“If I was there on my own, that would have been a horrible way to die. And surely I would have. Surely. 

But I wasn’t alone. It was my nephew, sweet Alex, and the rest of the cavalry came.

So, I’m writing down notes in my phone. Last notes to my family…”

But perhaps my favorite part is where he details what he said right before the snow plow ran him over. After he dug out his cousin’s truck, the massive Sno-Cat starting sliding backwards and Renner stuck his foot out on the track without parking break engaged.

And then, he fell out:

“You shouldn’t be outside the vehicle when you’re operating it, you know what I mean? It’s like driving a car with one foot out of the car… it’s my mistake, and I paid for it.”

With the Sno-Cat still moving backwards, he tried to jump back in the cockpit, and that’s when he got crushed underneath it:

“That’s when I screamed, by the way, when I went under the thing… ‘Not today, motherf*cker’ is what I screamed. Sorry for the language.”

Gotta love it.

Get well soon Jeremy, we need you back on the big screen.
