Jeremy Renner shares video recovering in hospital after snowplowing accident
Actor Jeremy Renner is celebrating his 52nd birthday in hospital, where he is being treated after being “crushed” by a snow plow that left him with serious injuries.
The Marvel star underwent two surgeries at a Nevada hospital after the “tragic” incident that left him on a “long road to recovery”.
He had been trying to rescue his car from the snow when he was accidentally run over by the heavy-duty snow plow he had been operating.
“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 their original statement. “He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.”
On Wednesday (January 4), TMZ obtained the details of the log made by emergency services at the time, including details from the 911 call that give further insight into Renner’s immediate injuries.
According to the publication, Renner, 51, was audibly groaning in the background of the call, due to his pain.
The record notes that the right side of Renner’s chest had collapsed and that his upper torso was crushed.
The plow ran over one of the actor’s legs, despite a large array of safety features, leading to major blood loss, a neighbor said.
In his first post since the accident, Renner shared a selfie from his hospital bed with the caption: “Thank you all for your kind words. Im [sic] too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”

The extent of the actor’s injuries were revealed earlier this week in the 911 call log from directly after the incident.
Renner, who turned 52 in the hospital today, could be heard groaning in the background of the call, due to his pain.

Do you need a license to drive a Snowcat?
Following the Sheriff’s press conference, a reporter asked if anyone could drive a Snowcat or if you needed a license to operate one.
“It was on a private road, so he can drive that Snowcat. In this instance, as Mr. Renner always does, those private roads. He was being a great neighbor and he was plowing those roads for his neighbors up there. Again they had three feet,” answered Sheriff Balaam.
Now, while the Marvel actor was on private roads, many companies require professional Snowcat operators/drivers to have at least a driver’s license. Some even require their drivers to go through training and certification before operating the Snowcat.
