Actor Jeremy Renner had a close call on New Year’s Day when he was involved in an accident with a snow plow. According to Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam, Renner was helping a family member whose car had become stranded in the Nevada snow when his snow removal vehicle became stuck. When Renner attempted to remove it, it began to roll, resulting in Renner being run over and suffering more than 30 broken bones.
Renner was in “critical but stable condition” after the accident, but has since updated fans on social media about his recovery. He thanked his fans for their messages of support and said that, although his injuries will take time to heal, “the love and bond with family and friends deepens.” To prove he was on the mend, Renner even managed to watch the Season 2 premiere of his show, “The Mayor of Kingstown”, from home.
The accident serves as a reminder to be careful when attempting to remove a vehicle from a hazardous situation, and to always be aware of potential risks. Renner has showed tremendous resilience and optimism in the face of a serious injury, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
