New details have emerged in regards to the ‘weather-related accident’ that left Oscar-nominated actor and Marvel Studios alum Jeremy Renner in critical but stable condition in hospital on Sunday.
At the time, we previously only knew that the accident took place whilst he was plowing snow and he was airlifted to a hospital from his Lake Tahoe, Nevada house – a region hit by a severe winter storm on New Year’s Eve.
Now, TMZ has learned new details about the accident and injuries. 51-year-old Renner was reportedly plowing the road about a quarter mile from his Tahoe home so his family could get out after the storm.
According to a neighbor, the machine he was using to plow accidentally ran over one of Jeremy’s legs, and Renner was losing a lot of blood from the injury. A fellow neighbor, a doctor, was able to tourniquet the leg until an air ambulance with paramedics arrived.
A source for the outlet claims his injuries are “extensive” and go beyond his leg and impact other parts of his body. Further details of the injury are not available.
The accident area is reportedly being “treated like an active crime scene”, with policing arriving to impound the vehicle, which has extensive safety features and should not have rolled over Renner.
The actor can soon be seen in the upcoming second season of “Mayor of Kingstown” which premieres on January 15th on the Paramount+ service, and is rumored to be appearing in the upcoming Marvel film “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty”.
