According to a new report, Jeremy Renner sustained blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after being involved in a “weather-induced” snowplow crash on January 1.
People magazine announced that it has acquired an official statement from Renner’s representative, verifying the severe injuries he sustained on Sunday.
“We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023,” the statement read, according to People. “He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.
“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 the Carano and Murdock families,” the statement continued. “They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
A source told People magazine on Monday that Renner’s injuries were “extensive.” The “Mayor of Kingstown” and Marvel star’s rep shared that Renner is in “critical but stable condition” and is “receiving excellent care.”
On Sunday night, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office announced that Renner had been airlifted to a hospital for treatment after being injured in an area near Mt. Rose Highway, which links Lake Tahoe to south Reno and straddles both Nevada and California.
Renner found Washoe County to be the perfect fit for him and his family, as it features majestic scenery, convenient access to skiing trails, and an ideal-sized city of Reno. He further expressed this sentiment when he spoke with the Reno Gazette Journal in 2019.
Renner was the only person involved in Sunday’s accident, and the sheriff’s office said in a news release that it is investigating.
“At approximately 9:00am on January 1, 2023, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada,” the release read.
“Upon arrival, Deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Mr. Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital,” it continued. “Mr. Renner was the only involved party in the incident.”
In the expansive Marvel cinematic and television world, Renner portrays Hawkeye – an incredibly accurate archer who is part of the heroic Avengers squad.
He is a two-time acting Oscar nominee, scoring back-to-back nods for “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” Renner’s portrayal of a bomb disposal specialist in Iraq in 2009’s “The Hurt Locker” helped turn him into a household name.
“The Avengers” in 2012 cemented him as part of Marvel’s grand storytelling ambitions, with his character appearing in several sequels and getting its own Disney+ series, “Hawkeye.”
