Jeremy Renner is giving fans the most intimate look yet at the dangerous snowplow accident he was involved in at the beginning of 2023. In an ABC News teaser shared on March 29, the actor revealed that he is sitting down with Diane Sawyer for his first televised interview since the incident and shared a bit about what the accident was like.

“I was awake through every moment,” he said, recalling the experience of being crushed by a machine that weighed over 14,000 pounds, resulting in eight broken ribs, a punctured liver, and a collapsed lung. But Renner said he wound up finding resilience through the experience. “I chose to survive. That’s not gonna kill me, no way,” he noted. “I’ve lost a lot of flesh and bone in this experience, but I’ve been refueled and refilled with love and titanium.”

Renner’s interview with Sawyer will be released in full on April 6. The following week, Renner’s Disney+ special “Rennervations” — which follows Renner as he travels around the world helping communities transform decommissioned government vehicles to suit their needs — will air, and Renner is set to make his first public appearance since the accident at the Los Angeles premiere on April 11, per Disney+.

In late January, new details about Renner’s New Year’s Day snowplowing incident revealed the “Avengers” actor had been saving his adult nephew when the accident occurred. Per an incident report obtained by CNN from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, the PistenBully snow groomer was sliding toward his nephew when he attempted to jump back onto the snowplow to engage the break and was pulled under the vehicle’s track in the process.

“The PistenBully snow groomer began sliding causing Renner to exit the vehicle without setting the emergency brake,” the report read. “Although the Pistenbully had some mechanical issues, it is believed based on our mechanical inspection that the parking brake would keep the Pistenbully from moving forward. When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully to avoid injury to (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and run over.”

The report also revealed Renner was using the snowplow to help his nephew move his truck from a driveway, and that his nephew was able to help the actor until help arrived after he was crushed by the Pistenbully. In the excerpt of Renner and Sawyer’s special, his nephew recalled a bit about what the event was like. “I see him in a pool of blood coming from his head,” Renner’s nephew said. “I ran up to him. I didn’t think he was alive.”

On Jan. 3, a spokesperson for Renner confirmed to CNN that he had suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” and was in the intensive care unit in “critical but stable condition.” While reps for Renner did not respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment, according to CNN, the Avengers star underwent at least two surgeries.

Renner gave fans an initial update on his condition on Jan. 3, posting a photo from his hospital bed on Instagram. “Thank you all for your kind words. 🙏,” he captioned it. “Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.” Shortly after, supportive comments from fellow celebrities poured in, including Vanessa Hudgens, who wrote back, “Sending so much love n healing!”

On Jan. 5, Renner shared another update on his recovery, posting a video on his Instagram Stories of his mom and sister comforting him while giving him a head massage in the hospital. “ICU SPA MOMENT TO LIFT MY SPIRITS,” he captioned it.

On Jan. 16, Renner gave fans another brief update, confirming that he had returned home and was feeling well enough to watch the premiere of the second season of his show “Mayor of Kingstown.” “Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home,” he wrote on Twitter late that evening in response to a tweet from the show’s official account.

Even though he’s been home with his family for a while since the accident, Renner still has a long road to recovery ahead of him. On Jan. 21, the “Hawkeye” actor thanked his family, friends, and fans for their support since his accident and posted a new photo on Instagram alongside a caption with new details about the extent of his injuries.

“Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this particular new years …” Renner captioned a photo of himself appearing to receive physical therapy. “Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love ❤️.”

He continued, “I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I …. Much love and appreciation to you all. These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens . Love and blessings to you all.”

Then, in a since-deleted Feb. 27 Instagram Story, via E! News, Renner posted a video of himself working out on an exercise bike, captioning it, “whatever it takes.” In the next slide, he shared a photo of a book called “Book of Awakening” along with the caption, “Mental recovery too.”

Renner was hospitalized on New Year’s Day after the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, NV, that required him to be airlifted to a nearby hospital. According to a press release, Renner was the only involved party in the incident.

As details emerged about Renner’s terrifying accident, stars like Mark Ruffalo, Josh Gad, and James Gunn all shared their well wishes for the actor on social media. “Prayers up for our brother @jeremyrenner on a full and speedy recovery,” Ruffalo posted on his Instagram Stories on Jan. 9.

In a statement to People shortly after the accident, Renner’s rep said, “Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families. They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
