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-plowing 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 snowplow accident in Nevada over the weekend.
“We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today (January 2),” 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 plowing the road around a quarter mile from his Nevada home to get his family out after a snowstorm on New Year’s Eve.
The plow, a Snowcat, accidentally ran over one of the actor’s legs, despite a large array of safety features, leading to major blood loss, a neighbor said according to the outlet.
Another neighbor, a doctor, put a tourniquet on Mr. Renner’s legs until the arrival of paramedics. Police arrived at the scene around 8pm on Sunday night, 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”.

While there has been no further explanation on who the Carano and Murdock families are, earlier reports said that Renner received immediate assistance after the accident from two of his neighbors, one of whom is a doctor.
