Actor Jeremy Renner Critically Injured In Snowplow Incident In Nevada

Reno, NV – Hollywood Actor Jeremy Renner was airlifted to a hospital after suffering critical injuries while plowing snow on Sunday, according to his publicist.

“As of now, we can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” Renner’s publicist, Samantha Mast, told KABC. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”

The incident occurred in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno at approximately 9 a.m. on Jan. 1, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) said in a statement.

The 51-year-old Academy Award-nominated actor, who lives in the area, was the only person involved in the incident, according to the WCSO.

Deputies rushed to the scene and coordinated with the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA) Health and the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District to have Renner airlifted to a local hospital.

Details regarding what transpired in the moments prior to Renner’s injuries have not been released.

It is also unclear what specific injuries he suffered, although the WCSO described them as “traumatic.”

His prognosis is unknown.

The WCSO Major Accident Investigation Team is handling the ongoing investigation into the incident.

Renner received Academy Awards nominations for “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town,” WABC reported.

He has starred as Hawkeye in the “The Avengers” movies, as well as in the “Hawkeye” series on Disney+, and had a leading role in the “Mayor of Kingstown” series on Paramount+.
