vJeremy Renner was critically injured in a snowplough accident over the weekend, leaving him in “critical but stable condition,” according to a spokeswoman for the actor.
“We can confirm Jeremy is in serious but stable condition with injuries sustained while shoveling snow earlier today,” a spokeswoman for the Hawkeye star told the Hollywood Reporter late Sunday night.
“His family is there for him, and he is getting fantastic care,” they continued.
Throughout his career, the 51-year-old actor has been nominated for two Academy Awards for his roles in The Hurt Locker and The Town. He rose to prominence as the superhero Clint Barton, popularly known as Hawkeye, in Marvel flicks, as well as his part in the Mission Impossible film trilogy.
Renner owns a property in the Sierra Nevada highlands above Lake Tahoe. The region was slammed by a snow storm on New Year’s Eve, which knocked out electricity to 35,000 residences. Over the last week, most of the United States has been pummelling by the “blizzard of the century,” with at least 60 people killed throughout the country.
Renner tweeted a snapshot of snow in the region on December 13th, writing: “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
On Instagram, he shared numerous videos of himself driving a snow plough, remarking on one of them, “Nearly done with sledding slope for the kids.”
Renner will next be seen in the second season of Mayor of Kingstown, which premieres in two weeks.
