On Sunday, Renner’s spokesperson told TheWrap the “Hawkeye” actor is in a “critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today.”
Details of the accident have not yet been confirmed by his reps, but TMZ reported on Monday that a snowcat – a heavy-duty vehicle with caterpillar tracks for snow and ice – ran over Renner’s leg and that he lost a “serious” amount of blood. Neighbors had to apply a tourniquet before the medivac arrived to take him to a hospital near Reno, according to TMZ. The outlet reports that suffered additional injuries besides his leg.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s office confirmed to Newsweek that it had responded to a one-person “traumatic injury” around 9 a.m on New Year’s Day. Reps for the two-time Oscar nominee told TheWrap they hope to have an update on the actor’s condition later on Monday.

On Renner’s most recent Instagram post, fans left such messages as, “I hope you recover very soon Jeremy! You are an amazing person, very strong and brave. I love you man,” and “Oh no, please be ok.”
The Dec. 29 Instagram post, which was also shared on Twitter, teased Renner’s upcoming reality show for Disney+ called “Rennervations,” which follows him as he travels around the world. It’s listed as “in production” on IMDbPRO.
