Jeremy Renner in ‘critical but stable’ condition after ‘weather-related’ accident
Actor Jeremy Renner has undergone two surgeries at a Nevada hospital after suffering serious injuries in a snow-ploughing accident.
The Hurt Locker star is reportedly “conscious, stable and speaking” and underwent the surgeries as part of his “long road to recovery”, according to Extra.
Renner has been listed as being in critical but stable condition following the snowplough accident in Nevada over the weekend.
“We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries and has undergone surgery today (2 January),” Renner’s family said in a statement. “He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.”
New details are emerging with TMZ reporting that Renner was ploughing the road around a quarter mile from his Nevada home to get his family out after a snowstorm on New Year’s Eve.
The plough, a Snowcat, accidentally ran over one of the actor’s legs, despite a large array of safety features, leading to major blood loss, a neighbour said according to the outlet.
Police arrived at the scene at 9:37 am on Sunday morning, impounding the Snowcat, which the actor has shown himself using on social media.
In their statement, Renner’s family thanked the “Carano and Murdock families”.
Renner posts from hospital
Renner has shared a selfie on Instagram – the first we’ve heard of him since he was run over by a snowplough on Sunday.
In the post, Renner wrote: “Thank you all for your kind words. Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”

Sheriff Darin Balaam just said that Renner was run over by an unmanned Snowcat while he was clearing snow for his family and neighbours.
Reno mayor Hillary Schieve previously told Reno Gazette-Journal that the actor had gotten out of the snowplough to help a stranded car on the side of a snowy mountain when the plough accidentally ran him over.

What shows and movies has Renner starred in?
Many Renner fans may know him best as his bow-and-arrow-armed Avenger Hawkeye, but the 51-year-old actor has had a decades-long career starring in a slew of other popular films and shows.
His first on-screen credit was leading 1995 teen-comedy National Lampoon’s Senior Trip. And as most actors do, he featured in one episode of the original CSI in 2001.
Amidst minor roles in films like The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004) and The Town (2010), among others, he eventually landed his breakout Marvel role in the first Avengers (2012).
Renner’s other major movie titles include 2012 action-thriller The Bourne Legacy, 2013 fantasy-action Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and 2016 sci-fi thriller Arrival.
He’s since reprised his Clint Barton/Hawkeye role in at least two Avengers films and Captain America: Civil War (2016).
In 2021, Disney Plus released a six-episode mini-series focused on Renner’s Avenger, titled Hawkeye.
Currently, he leads Paramount+’s thrilling series Mayor of Kingstown, which premieres its second season on 15 January.

Quick breakdown of actor’s family
With Renner’s family recently releasing a statement, I thought it might be helpful to share a quick rundown of his family tree.
Renner was born in 1971 to his parents, Valerie Cearley and Lee Renner, who divorced when he was 10. He is the eldest of seven, with his father welcoming Renner’s youngest sibling in 2011. The actor was 40 years old when his youngest brother Theo was born!
He welcomed his only child, daughter Ava Berlin Runner with American Pie actor Sonni Pacheco in 2013. Renner and Pacheco later married in 2014, before ultimately divorcing a year after in 2015.
In an earlier interview, he spoke about being a father, revealing that he was willing to give up his Hawkeye role to devote more time to his daughter.
“It taught me how to have the nuts to say, ‘Everyone, f*** off. It’s my time with my daughter. I said, ‘Fine, recast me. I’m going to be here with my daughter.’ It was pretty gnarly,” Renner said.
“Acting and everything else goes out the window until my daughter says, ‘I want to hang out with my friends, and I don’t want to be around you so much, Daddy.’”
