Marvel cinematic universe star, Jeremy Renner suffered several injuries in a snowplow accident on his property in Reno, Nevada, on New Year's Day. According to Deadline, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Reno confirmed that Renner is in “critical but stable condition." The actor has so far required two surgeries to address injuries he sustained in the accident, a source close to the actor previously told CNN.
Renner was taken into surgery on Monday. His representative spoke to PEOPLE, and said, "We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd, 2023. He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition." Sergeant Kristin Vietti of Washoe County Sheriff’s office said, "at approximately 9:00 am 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. 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."

According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, Renner has a home in the area, near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, about 25 miles from Reno. The region saw a winter storm hit on New Year’s Eve that resulted in 35,000 homes across Northern Nevada’s Washoe, Carson, Douglas, Storey, and Lyon counties losing power.
Recently, CNN also reported that the actor has posted many pictures of himself in snowy conditions. In one video posted two weeks ago and featured in his Instagram holiday highlights reels, Renner appears to be driving a snow plow with the caption, “pave new paths, holiday adventures.” Another from a week ago shows snow being plowed with the caption, “Nearly done with sledding hill for the kids.”
Renner's representative informed PEOPLE that "his family is with him and he is receiving excellent care." They also said, "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. They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans."
According to authorities, the actor was the only party involved in the incident. The Washoe County Sheriff's Office Major Accident Investigation Team is currently looking into the circumstances.
