Jeremy Renner has a home near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, where the accident occurred.
2023 is off to a rough start for Avengers star Jeremy Renner. According to Deadline, he was involved in a snow-plowing accident earlier today. Renner was airlifted to the hospital and is in “critical but stable condition. Renner resides in Nevada, where he runs a house-renovating business with a friend and fellow actor, Kristoffer Winters. The 51-year-old Oscar nominee is known for playing Hawkeye in the original Avengers film and many of the sequels. Renner received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in The Hurt Locker and another for his supporting role in The Town.
He also appeared in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and its follow-up Rogue Nation. He reprised his role as Hawkeye in the Disney+ spin-off of the same name in late 2021. In addition, Renner is set to return for the Paramount+ series The Mayor of Kingstown. The series is by Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan, co-creator of Yellowstone.
According to TMZ, eyewitnesses tell us Renner was plowing the road about a quarter mile away from his Tahoe home so his family could get out after a massive snowstorm. A neighbor said that the plowing machine – called a Snowcat – accidentally ran over one of Renner’s legs, causing him to lose massive blood from the injury. Another neighbor, who is a doctor, was able to put a tourniquet on his leg until paramedics arrived. Emergency crews were initially concerned about the weather conditions to access the accident scene due to the storm.
The police arrived at 8 pm to impound the Snowcat. Renner’s snowplow machine has extensive safety features and should not have rolled over him. His injuries are described as “extensive,” and, along with his leg, other parts of his body are injured.
