“Hawkeye” Actor Jeremy Renner is hospitalized in critical condition after being injured in a weather-related snow plowing incident in Nevada, The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Reno, NV has confirmed
Deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Renner via care flight to a local area hospital, the release stated.
“As of now, we can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” Sam Mast told CNN in a statement. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”
The sheriff’s office did not provide details on the extent of Renner’s injuries or what may have caused the accident.
Mr. Renner, 51, has played Hawkeye, a member of Marvel’s Avengers superheroes team, in several movies and a television series. He has also twice been nominated for an Oscar, for his roles in “The Hurt Locker” (2008) and “The Town” (2010). “Mayor of Kingstown” begins its second season January 15 on Paramount+. The series is created by Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon and produced by 101 Studios, Bosque Ranch Productions, MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount Network for Par+. Renner previously starred in Sheridan’s 2017 drama “Wind River.”
According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, Renner has a home in that area, near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, about 25 miles from Reno. The region saw a winter storm hit on New Year’s Eve that resulted in 35,000 homes across Northern Nevada’s Washoe, Carson, Douglas, Storey and Lyon counties losing power as of this morning, according to the paper.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Investigation Team is looking into the circumstances. Renner has featured multiple videos and photos on his verified social media accounts showing him in snowy conditions. A photo from a year ago posted on his Instagram account shows a group of trees in an area with significant snowfall.
