That same day, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam told reporters his officers had responded to a 911 call about a man who had been crushed under his Sno-Cat, a 14,000-pound snow-moving machine .
The Sno-Cat racer he was driving began to roll when he was not in the vehicle. He was injured trying to get back into the driver’s seat.
Balaam said weather-related road closures delayed response times. Renner was taken to a hospital in Reno by ambulance. The Sno-Cat was confiscated.
