Reno, NV — Jeremy Renner underwent surgery on Tuesday after sustaining blunt force trauma and orthopedic injuries to his chest in a snowplow accident in Reno, Nevada.
A statement from his publicist said the actor has returned from surgery and remains in critical but stable condition in the intensive care unit.
“Jeremy’s family would like to thank the amazing doctors and nurses who looked after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, the Washoe County Sheriff, Reno Mayor Hilary Sieve, and the Carano and Murdoch families. I would like to express my intention,” the statement said.
“They are also extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
Renner, 51, was flown from the scene of the incident in Reno to a local hospital, according to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office.
“On January 1, 2023, at approximately 9:00 a.m., the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to traumatic injuries in the Mount Rose Highway area of Reno, Nevada,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
Renner was the only person involved in Sunday’s accident, and the sheriff’s office said in a news release that it was under investigation.
Renner has played the lead role as Hawkeye in Marvel’s ‘Avengers’ films. He is the star of Marvel’s ‘Hawkeye’ series on his Disney+.
He has been nominated twice for an Academy Award for “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town” and has been nominated twice in a row. His portrayal of Iraqi bomb disposal specialist Renner in 2009’s The Hurt Locker helped make him a household name.
