Linkedin Share

As many were preparing to ring in the new year with friends and family, actor Jeremy Renner was fighting for his life.

Renner, who has most recently been known for his role as the Avenger “Hawkeye” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was attempting to clear the road to his home with a piece of heavy snow-moving machinery when something went terribly wrong. 

According to Mayor Hillary Schieve, who is a friend of Renner’s, the actor had gotten out of his snowplow to help someone in a stranded car when he was run over by his own vehicle, per local newspaper the Reno Gazette Journal. “He was helping someone stranded in the snow,” Schieve said. “He is always helping others.” This was near his home on the Mt. Rose Highway, 25 minutes from downtown Reno.

Apparently, the two-time Oscar nominee is always helping out members of the community, more than most people know. “He’s always calling and saying, ‘Hey Mayor, what do you need?’” said Schieve. “There are a few times he’ll post about what he has done or donated toys but most of it you would never know he is doing.”

TMZ reported the plowing machine accidentally ran over one of Renner’s legs and other parts of his body when the accident occurred, causing him to lose a lot of blood. A neighbor, who’s also a doctor, was thankfully nearby to apply a tourniquet on his leg until paramedics arrived. According to TMZ, the machine has extensive safety features and should not have rolled over Renner, which is why the area was being treated like an active crime scene. The snowplow in question, a Snowcat, was impounded according to TMZ.

Renner was severely injured.

“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.”

The beloved actor continues to recover at the time of this writing.
