Jeremy Renner is on his way to recovery after a terrible snowplowing accident. It was reported that the actor was completely crushed. Renner celebrated his 52nd birthday with a message of gratitude to his medical care team. He wrote, “Thank you renowned medical ICU team for beginning this journey.” The Marvel actor underwent two surgeries for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries. The news states that he was clearing snow from a private driveway and helping someone else. The accident took place in his Nevada home.
Many actors like Chris Evans and more came forth to wish their co-star a happy birthday. Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam explained the terrible accident. He said that the engine-powered machine used to clear snow started to roll away while Renner was not in the driver’s seat. Renner could not kick off the new year with smiles and rainbows. The weather conditions at the time of the accident were severe and the highway was closed. Hence, he had to be taken to the hospital via helicopter.

The unearthed log shows Renner moaning in excruciating pain and suffering heavy blood loss from his hand and other parts of his body. Renner’s family previously shared a statement, “We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023. He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.” Moreover, the 911 emergency call log by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office mentioned the actor was “completely crushed.”
During the press conference held by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department, the authorities said that the actor was trying to “help a family member” by getting a “stuck” vehicle out of the estimated 3 feet of snowfall from the previous night. The Sheriff also noted that the weight of the snow plowing machine that went over the actor’s leg was at least “14,330 pounds.” The authorities have ruled out any kind of “foul play” and called it just a “tragic accident.”
