In the upcoming Diane Sawyer interview about his uncle’s accident, Fries said, “I just perfectly see him in a pool of blood coming from his head, and I ran up to him and I didn’t think he was alive.” Renner was originally using the snowplow to pull Fries’ truck out from the snow when it suddenly began to go rogue, sliding sideways.
