The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that officers responded at approximately 9 a.m. Sunday to a traumatic injury near Mt. Rose Highway in Reno.
“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. Mr. Renner was the only involved party in the incident.”
The sheriff’s Major Accident Investigation Team is “currently looking into the circumstances of the incident,” the sheriff’s statement said.
Renner has owned a home in Washoe County for several years. That area in northern Nevada received heavy snowfall due to a storm on Near Year’s Eve, and more than 31,000 people lost power, according to News 4.
In 2015, Renner posted an Instagram photo of a snowcat vehicle, which is used to travel over snowy terrain in difficult conditions.
In 2017, the actor revealed that he fractured his right elbow and his left wrist while filming the comedy “Tag.”
Renner has starred in multiple Marvel projects as Clint Barton / Hawkeye since the 2011 film “Thor.” In addition to being an Avenger, Renner has acted in numerous critical and commercial hits, including two films in the “Mission: Impossible” series, “Arrival,” “American Hustle” and “28 Weeks Later.” He has also been nominated for two Oscars, including a supporting nod for “The Town” and best actor nom for his work in “The Hurt Locker.”
He is currently starring in the Taylor Sheridan series “Mayor of Kingstown,” which is debuting its second season in January. He also recently teased an unscripted series he’s starring in at Disney Plus in 2023 called “Rennervations,” based around renovating decommissioned firetrucks and buses out of the Oddie district in Sparks, Nev.
