Following an accident involving a snow plow, “Avengers” actor Jeremy Renner is in “critical but stable condition.”
The “Hawkeye” star suffered injuries “after having a weather-related accident while shoveling snow earlier today” in Nevada, according to a statement released by his representative late Sunday.
His family is present and he is receiving superb medical treatment.
Deadline was the first to report his accident.
According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, 51-year-old Renner resides around 25 miles west of Reno, near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe. On New Year’s Eve, a snow storm caused 35,000 homes to lose power, according to the publication.
“I have so much respect for Mother Earth and Mother Nature,” Renner wrote in a mid-December Instagram video. “I anticipate losing the fight, but I will always give it my all.”
In December 2021, the “Tag” actor will launch a campaign to build a Tahoe fire station to “help battle fires” in response to his reputation as a fervent opponent of local natural disasters.
The neighborhood surrounding Renner’s residence has been pummeled by a winter storm.
When asked about his position as a volunteer fire chief, Renner told singer and daytime talk show host Kelly Clarkson, “I’m building a station at my Tahoe home since it’s a high-risk area for fires.”
“The fire departments up there are fantastic, where I work. They are instructing and assisting me, and I must spend additional time with them.”
In the Marvel universe, the actor is most known for portraying Hawkeye.
Renner is best known for his part in the Marvel world, but he also received Oscar nominations for Best Actor in 2010 for “The Hurt Locker” and Supporting Actor in 2011 for “The Town.”
Renner and his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco are the parents of Ava Berlin, 9 years old.
