Actor Jeremy Renner has shared his first post since he was seriously injured in an accident while plowing snow earlier this week. Along with a selfie from the hospital bed, Renner wrote: “Thank you all for your kind words. I'm too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”
Renner was in a 'critical but stable' condition, his publicist had stated earlier. The comments section of his latest post is flooded with messages from members of the film fraternity. The Russo Brothers commented: "Sending all of our love, brother, and hopes for a speedy recovery."
Renner was seriously injured in a weather-related accident while plowing snow outside his Nevada home Sunday morning. Renner was plowing snow on the road so his family could get out after a snowstorm. According to a Guardian report, the 6,500-kg snow plow vehicle had “run over” the actor, causing blunt chest and trauma and orthopedic injuries.
In a press conference, Washoe county’s sheriff, Darin Balaam, said his department’s investigation had found that Renner was struck by the plow while trying to free his car, which was being driven by a family member, from snow near his home.
That area in northern Nevada was hit by heavy snowfall, as many parts of the US were hit by a ferocious winter storm that brought snow and subzero temperatures through the last week of December.
He was airlifted after the accident and underwent surgery on Tuesday.
A two-time Oscar nominee, Renner has starred in Marvel's Hawkeye series as well as the Avengers and Captain America films. He is currently starring in the Paramount+ series Mayor of Kingstown, which is debuting its second season on January 15.
