Jeremy Renner Undergoes Surgery After Snow-Plowing Accident

Actor Jeremy Renner has undergone surgery after suffering blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries in an accident on Sunday, January 1.

The 51-year-old actor, best known for his roles as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and in the Academy Award-nominated film The Hurt Locker, remains in a critical but stable condition in intensive care.

According to his publicist, Renner was injured while driving a snow plow near his home in Reno, Nevada on New Year’s Day.

Eyewitnesses told TMZ that the actor was plowing a road so his family could get out after a snowstorm, when the Sno-Cat plow ran over one of his legs.

Despite the plow’s safety features, Renner reportedly lost a lot of blood from the injury. A neighbor who is a doctor applied a tourniquet to Renner’s leg until paramedics arrived.

In a statement, Renner’s publicist 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.”

The Washoe County Sheriff’s office is currently investigating the incident, which it says involved only Renner.

The actor’s snow plow was towed away on Sunday night. Renner is set to appear in the second season of the Paramount+ crime drama Mayor of Kingstown, which is set to air in two weeks.
