Jeremy Renner Shares Video Recovering In Hospital After Snow Plowing Accident
Actor Jeremy Renner was “completely crushed” by the snow plow, leaving him with serious injuries.
The Marvel star underwent two surgeries at a Nevada hospital following the “tragic” incident that has left him on a “long road to recovery.”
He had been trying to save his car from the snow when he was accidentally run over by the powerful snow plow he had been driving.
“We can confirm Jeremy suffered blunt force trauma to the chest and orthopedic injuries and underwent surgery today (January 2),” Renner’s family said in their original statement. “He has returned from surgery and remains in intensive care in a critical but stable condition.”
Wednesday (January 4) TMZ obtained the details of the log made by emergency services at the time, including details from the 911 call that provide additional insight into Renner’s immediate injuries.
According to the publication, Renner, 51, groaned audibly in the background of the call due to his pain.
The journal notes that the right side of Renner’s chest was collapsed and that his upper body was crushed.
The plow accidentally ran over one of the actor’s legs, despite a host of safety features, leading to heavy blood loss, a neighbor said.
In her first post since the accident, Renner shared a selfie from her hospital bed with the caption: “Thank you all for your kind words. I am [sic] too messy now to write. But I send love to you all.”

Do you need a license to drive a Snowcat?
After the sheriff’s press conference, a reporter asked if anyone could drive a Snowcat or if you needed a license to operate one.
“It was on a private road so he can drive that Snowcat. In this case, as Mr. Renner always does, the private roads. He was a good neighbor and he plowed those roads for his neighbors up there. Again, the three had foot,” replied Sheriff Balaam.
Now, while the Marvel actor was on private roads, many companies require professional Snowcat operators/drivers to have at least a driver’s license. Some even require their drivers to undergo training and certification before operating the Snowcat.
