Jeremy Renner has surgery following snow plow accident
Jeremy Renner sustained blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries in a snow plow accident in Reno, Nevada, on Sunday, according to a spokesman for the actor, who underwent surgery on Monday and is still in a critical but stable condition.
The 51-year-old “Avengers” actor is in a critical care unit after surgery, according to a statement from Renner’s representative.
“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve” and others, read the statement. “They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
Authorities and Renner’s representative haven’t said how the accident occurred. The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said late Sunday that Renner had to be flown by helicopter to a hospital for treatment.
Renner was injured in an area near Mt. Rose Highway, a road linking Lake Tahoe, which straddles the Nevada-California border, and south Reno. Renner owns a home in Washoe County, which includes Reno, and told the Reno Gazette Journal in 2019 that he chose the area because Reno was the right-sized city for him, it has majestic scenery and it allowed him and his family to ski frequently.
