MARVEL star Jeremy Renner is ‘out of surgery’ but remains in critical condition following a horror accident while plowing snow.
The Avengers actor 51, was airlifted to the hospital on Sunday after he suffered serious injuries in a weather-related accident near his home.
Renner’s spokesperson confirmed the Hawkeye star “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries” and is in intensive care in a “critical but stable condition” after surgery.
The statement adds: “Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families.
“They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
The accident happened near the Mount Rose Highway, in Washoe County in Nevada.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada said in a news release that it is investigating the incident.
Renner has posted several photos and videos of himself working outside his home at Lake Tahoe.
Last month, he tweeted a picture of a car that was buried in snowfall.
Renner captioned the snap: “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
And, he also shared a picture of stunning blue skies amid the freezing conditions.

Another said: “Praying for Jeremy Renner.”
“Sending up prayers for his swift recovery” a different fan tweeted.
