Renner spent more than two weeks in the hospital after being hit by his own 7-ton snowcat.
Actor Jeremy Renner says he broke more than 30 bones in a New Year’s Eve snowplow accident that left him in critical condition.
“Morning workouts, decisions – everything changed this new year… These 30+ broken bones will mend, get stronger, just like the love and connection with family and friends will deepen,” Renner wrote on Instagram Saturday. “Love and blessings to all of you.”
Renner spent more than two weeks in the hospital after being hit by his own PistenBully snowcat near his Lake Tahoe home. Renner used the car to clear several feet of snow from a relative’s car. When he got out, the 7-ton car rolled.
“Trying to stop (it), Mr. Renner is trying to climb back into the driver’s seat. That’s when Mr. Renner gets hit by a car,” Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said earlier this month. Authorities are still investigating but said there was no indication that Renner was injured and no sign of foul play.
The Avengers star recently left the hospital to continue treatment at home. He did not share details of his condition, but a spokesperson said he suffered blunt force trauma to the chest and other injuries.
Emergency call logs obtained by several news outlets painted a grim picture, noting that Renner’s upper torso was “crushed” and one side of his chest was “destroyed”.
Renner was nominated for an Oscar for The Hurt Locker and The City. His role as a bomb disposal expert in Iraq in the 2009 film The Hurt Locker helped him become a household name.
2012’s The Avengers cemented his role in Marvel’s grand storytelling ambitions, with his character appearing in multiple sequels and getting his own Disney+ series Hawkeye.
