Actor Jeremy Renner is out of surgery, but remains in a critical condition, after he was involved in a snow plow accident in Reno, Nevada yesterday.
On New Year’s Day, the area suffered a major Winter storm which led to 35,000 homes losing power.
The accident occured at Ski-Rose Lake Tahoe where the Hawkeye actor has residence, leaving him with “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries”.
Renner who was the only person involved in the accident, remains “critical but stable condition”, after he was airlifted to an intensive care unit.
The actor’s representatives released this statement.
“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him … They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans”.
Along with Hawkeye, Jeremy Renner is also known for his role as Clint Binton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In November 2021, Renner also reprised his role as Clint Binton, alongside Hailee Steinfield, who also starred as Clint’s aspiring protegé Kate Bishop.
New regarding Renner’s accident comes just weeks after Top Gear presenter Freddie Flintoff was rushed to hospital, following an accident on the show’s set.
“Freddie was injured in an accident at the Top Gear test track this morning – with crew medics attending the scene immediately”, a BBC spokesperson had previously said of the incident.
