Actor Jeremy Renner suffered “blunt force trauma to the chest and orthopedic injuries” after a snow removal accident on New Year’s Day, a spokesperson for the actor said Monday night.
Renner underwent surgery on Monday and “remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition,” the spokesperson said.
“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses caring for him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, the Washoe County Sheriff, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, and the Carano and Murdock families,” reads -on in a press release from his spokesperson. “They are also extremely overwhelmed and appreciate the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
The “Hawkeye” actor has so far required two surgeries to treat the injuries he sustained in the accident, a source close to the actor told CNN.
“His injuries are significant,” they said.
Renner was hospitalized in critical condition after being injured in Nevada, his publicist confirmed to CNN earlier Monday.
“As of now, we can confirm that Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries sustained after suffering a weather-related accident while clearing snow earlier today,” Sam Mast told CNN in a statement. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”
Officers responded to a ‘traumatic injury’ in the Mount Rose Highway area of Reno, according to a press release from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, which the Oscar-nominated actor previously said lived in the community.
The sheriff’s office did not provide details about the extent of Renner’s injuries or what may have caused the crash.
His family is expected to release a statement on Monday evening, the source close to the actor added.
Deputies coordinated with the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange medical transportation for Renner via care flight to a local hospital, the statement said.
Renner, who stars in the Paramount+ series “Mayor of Kingstown” and has been featured in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films – as Hawkeye – was the only person involved in the accident, officials said.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating the circumstances.
Renner has featured multiple videos and photos on his verified social media accounts showing him in snowy conditions.
A photo from a year ago posted on his Instagram account shows a group of trees in an area with heavy snowfall.
“How would you feel if your driveway looked like this?” her caption read. “I’m so happy that Mother Nature dictates my day!”
In a video posted two weeks ago and featured in his vacation highlights reels on Instagram, Renner appears to be driving a snow plow with the caption, “open new paths, vacation adventures.”
Another from a week ago shows the snow being plowed with the caption: ‘Almost done with the toboggan run for the kids’.
