Jeremy Renner is out of surgery after suffering blunt force trauma to the chest and orthopedic injuries in a weather-related accident. He remains in the intensive care unit in “critical but stable condition,” according to his rep.
“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses who cared for him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, the Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hilary Shive, and the Carano and Murdock families,” the actor’s rep said in a statement. “They are extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the love and support from her fans.”
Rainer was involved in a weather-related accident near Reno, Nev., on New Year’s morning. After being transferred to a nearby medical center, Renner underwent surgery on Monday.
Renner has owned a home in Washoe County for several years. According to News 4, the northern Nevada region was hit by heavy snow during a storm on New Year’s Eve, leaving more than 31,000 people without power.
In addition to his popular appearance as Clint Burton, aka Hawkeye, in the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe, Renner is currently anchoring Taylor Sheridan’s drama series “Mayor of Kingstown,” which will begin its second season in January. He is also a two-time Oscar nominee for his turns in “The Heart Locker” and “The Town.”
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed officers responded to a fatal hit-and-run around 9 a.m. Sunday near Mount Rose Highway in Reno.
“Upon arrival, deputies coordinated with the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to transport Mr. Jeremy Renner to a local area hospital via Care Flight,” the office said. “Mr. Renner was the only party involved in this incident.”
