Jeremy Renner is “in critical but stable condition” in a hospital after a snow plow accident.
According to Deadline, the 51-year-old actor sustained injuries “after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” his rep said on Sunday, continuing, “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said the accident occurred near Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada.
The actor has had a home in the area for seven years and Today reports that local deputies responded to reports of a traumatic injury around 9:00 a.m. local time on New Year’s Day.
While the nature of his injury is unclear, the deputies worked with a local fire department to airlift Renner to a local hospital, the sheriff’s office said per the outlet.
“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,” the sheriff’s office said.
Washoe County experienced a major snowstorm on New Year’s Eve, and the storm knocked out power across the area, which left about 17,500 homes without power as of Sunday.
The Oscar-nominated actor shared his love of the outdoors on his Instagram account.
In December 2021, he shared a video of himself operating a snowplow.
“I have so much respect for Mother Earth , and Mother Nature … I expect to lose the fight but I’ll always give it my best shot #tahoelife life #snowthrower,” he wrote in the caption.
