  • Jeremy Renner was heard moaning in pain in a 911 call after his snowplow accident
  • One of the actor's neighbors made the 911 call after finding Renner severely injured outside their house
  • Renner was "completely crushed" by a Snowcat and had injuries to his ribs, chest, torso and head

Jeremy Renner could be heard moaning in pain in a 911 call made by one of his neighbors after the actor was "crushed" by his own snowplow in Nevada on Jan. 1.

TMZ obtained audio of the emergency call, which the unidentified neighbor made after the 52-year-old Marvel star was run over and had his ribs crushed by a Snowcat on a private mountain road near his home in Lake Tahoe.

The "Hawkeye" actor can be heard moaning in agony for over 15 minutes as his neighbor explained that Renner was conscious but in "a lot of pain."

"Immediately! Someone's been run over by a snowcat! Hurry!" the neighbor told the dispatcher in the audio. "Someone's in front of my house on the ground. He got run over by a Snowcat. He's been crushed! Send paramedics, ambulance."

The neighbor frantically described Renner's injuries, saying that he had "rib issues" and a head wound and was crushed up on his right side including his chest and torso, resulting in "a lot of blood."

In the audio call, the neighbor asked when emergency responders will arrive because Renner's "breath was getting shorter." The dispatcher responded that due to the heavy snow on the mountain, she didn't know how fast responders would get there.

The "Bourne Legacy" actor's neighbors covered him with blankets and protected his injured head before he could drift off to sleep.

Toward the end of the call, the neighbor could be heard telling Renner to "stay awake."

Nevada officials said the accident occurred while Renner was helping a family member get their car out of heavy snow on New Year's Day. The actor stepped out of his snowplow to chat with the family member when the 14,000-pound Snowcat started to roll.

During a news conference earlier this month, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said that Renner got injured while trying to get back in the driver's seat and that his family was there when the incident happened, CNN reported.

Authorities received the emergency call on New Year's Day morning. But because Mount Rose Highway was closed due to "severe winter weather," Renner was airlifted to a hospital where he received immediate treatment.

He underwent two surgeries for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.

Renner gave fans an update on his condition on Jan. 4, posting a selfie from the hospital bed and writing, "Thank you all for your kind words. I'm too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all."

After spending two weeks, and his 52nd birthday, at the hospital, Renner returned home, where he continues to recover from his injuries.

The actor made the announcement via Twitter, commenting on a post for the second season premiere of his crime drama "Mayor of Kingstown," which was released Tuesday on Paramount+.

"Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home," Renner wrote.
