Jeremy Renner in critical but stable condition after a snow plowing accident

Jeremy Renner is in critical but stable condition after he suffered an accident while plowing snow on Sunday, a representative said.

“We can confirm Jeremy is hospitalized in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” the representative said. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”

The spokesperson said in a later statement that Renner, 51, “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” and underwent surgery. The actor was in intensive care Monday evening.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said it responded to a report of a traumatic injury in the area of ​​Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada, at around 9 am local time (12 pm ET) Sunday.

It said Renner was the only person injured.

“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,” the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s office’s Major Accident Investigation Team is looking into the incident, it said.

It was not clear exactly where he was hurt. Renner has a home in Nevada, according to The Associated Press.

In 2015, he posted a photo to Instagram of a snowcat vehicle, which is used in snowy conditions. It was not immediately clear whether the vehicle was involved in Sunday’s incident.

Renner is well-known for his role as Hawkeye as part of Marvel’s Avengers squad. He is also a two-time Oscar nominee for his performances in “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.”

Renner’s spokesperson said Monday that his family wanted to express their gratitude to his doctors and nurses, first responders, and others.

“They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans,” the statement said.
