Jeremy Renner Provides Personal Update Following Snow Plow Accident

Sheriff Darin Balaam explained that “after successfully towing his vehicle from its stuck location, Mr. Renner got out of his PistenBully to speak to his family member.” At that point, the PistenBully apparently began to roll, and Renner tried to get into the driver’s seat — presumably to ensure it stopped — and was “run over by the PistenBully.” Yesterday, a witness told TMZ that a doctor applied a tourniquet to Renner’s leg, which the vehicle rolled over causing a significant amount of blood loss. Neither Renner’s post nor the live-streamed press conference gave updates on that specific injury, but the previous reporting at Variety stated that the actor suffered blunt chest trauma as well as orthopedic injuries.

Variety also shared a statement from the actor’s family, who “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 Renner family also noted that they are “overwhelmed and appreciative” of the love coming in from fans. Thank goodness Renner is doing well enough to post an update after an accident that sounds truly harrowing. We all wish him a safe recovery.
