Actor Jeremy Renner, known recently for his roles within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is recovering in the hospital after a freak accident involving his heavy duty snow-moving equipment.
Renner, whose remote Lake Tahoe home requires heavy machinery for snow maintenance, was preparing for guests to arrive to a New Year’s Eve party when tragedy struck.
Jeremy Renner suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries following a “weather related” snowplow accident on January 1, according to a new report.
People magazine reported that it received a statement from Renner’s representative, confirming the injuries that the Marvel star sustained on Sunday.
“We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023,” the statement read, according to People. “He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.
“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,” the statement continued. “They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
Renner needed to be airlifted to the hospital.
“At approximately 9:00am on January 1, 2023, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada,” the release read.
“Upon arrival, Deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Mr. Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital,” it continued. “Mr. Renner was the only involved party in the incident.”
