After surgery, actor Jeremy Renner remains in critical but stable condition
Actor Jeremy Renner suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” and remains hospitalized after an accident while shoveling snow in Nevada, his rep has said.
Renner, who starred in Marvel’s “Hawkeye” series, “The Hurt Locker” and many other films, underwent surgery on Monday, his rep Samantha Mast said in a statement. He was in intensive care in critical but stable condition.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a “traumatic injury” involving Renner around 9 a.m. Sunday in the Mt. Rose Highway area. Renner has a home near Lake Tahoe’s Mt. Rose ski area, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Renner was the only person involved in the crash and was airlifted to hospital, the sheriff’s office said.
The Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating the circumstances of the incident.
The Lake Tahoe region has been awash in snow for the past few days after a series of storms battered northern California. Last month, Renner tweeted a photo of a car covered in snow and said, “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
Mast said Renner’s family were “extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the outpouring of love and support from their fans.”
