Jeremy Renner hospitalized in 'critical but stable' condition after snow plowing accident
The "Kingston Mayor" star was injured near his home on New Year's Day.
Two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner is recovering in hospital after a "weather-related accident" on New Year's Day. His spokesman revealed the star is in a critical but stable condition with his injury and they will provide an update as he continues to receive treatment.
A subsequent release from the Washoe County Sheriff's Office in Reno, Nevada confirmed the incident. Sheriff Kristin Vietti said police were "responding to an incident of trauma in the Rose Hill Freeway area of Reno, Nevada" Sunday morning. Currently, there are no further details about the accident or Reina's injuries, although Vietti confirmed that the actor was the only one injured, adding: "On arrival, deputies coordinated with the Truckee Meadows Fire District and REMSA Health to arrange medical transport. Mr. Jeremy Renner was taken to a local hospital on a nursing flight. Mr. Renner was the only person involved in the incident." In the meantime, the department continues to investigate the incident.
Renner is no stranger to dealing with the region's harsh winter weather. He has posted on social media several times in the past about snow falling around his property, including a recent couple Video showing him plowing snow. The area was also recently hit by a major winter storm that left 35,000 people without power and created dangerous road conditions in the process, according to the Reno Gazette.
As He Recovers, Renner Is About to Make His Return to Television
Reiner won Academy Awards for Best Actor and Supporting Actor for The Hurt Locker in 2010 and Small Town in 2011. Today, he's best known for his role as Hawkeye in the MCU, appeared in the main Avengers films, and most recently starred in the hero's eponymous series opposite Hailee Steinfeld on Disney+. He also maintains a strong presence outside of the MCU, appearing in two Mission: Impossible movies on the big screen.
On television, he will reappear on screen with season 2 of Taylor Sheridan's hit Mayor of Kingstown on Paramount+. This is Renner's second major project under the superstar producer's leadership, having previously starred in his 2017 feature film Wind River alongside his MCU colleague Elizabeth Olsen. Created by Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, the show stars Rainer as a member of a family of power brokers who rises to mayor after his brother's death and desperately tries to bring order to a town that needs it.
