Popular Actor Jeremy Renner, who played Hawkeye in the Marvel “Avengers” movies, was in critical but stable condition in a Nevada hospital on Monday, a day after suffering a traumatic injury while plowing snow, his publicist and local officials said.
According to publicist Samantha Mast, Renner was in the intensive care unit following surgery on Monday after he “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in the accident, said in a statement.
“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,” the statement said.
“They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that it “responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada” on Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
It said Renner was the only involved party in the incident, which was being investigated. He was transported to a local area hospital in a care flight, officials said.
