“Hawkeye” actor Jeremy Renner is recovering from surgery after suffering “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in a New Year’s Day snow plowing accident in Nevada, a spokesman for the actor said.
The spokesman said that as of Monday evening, Rainer was in “critical but stable condition” in the intensive care unit.
The 51-year-old actor has so far undergone two surgeries to repair the injuries sustained in the accident, a source close to the actor previously told CNN.
Reiner was hospitalized Sunday after a “weather-related accident” while plowing snow, his representative Sam Mast confirmed to CNN earlier Monday.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a “traumatic injury” to Rainer in the area of Mount Rose Highway in Reno.
The sheriff’s office said in a news release that deputies found Reiner injured and coordinated his transport to an area hospital, adding that the actor was the only person involved in the accident.
