Jeremy Renner has ‘extensive’ injuries following snow plowing accident: report

Jeremy Renner has “extensive” injuries following a “weather related” snow plow accident on January 1, according to a new report.

A source told People magazine on Monday that Renner’s injuries are “extensive.” The “Mayor of Kingstown” and Marvel star’s rep shared that Renner is in “critical but stable condition” and is “receiving excellent care.”

Renner was injured in an area near Mt. Rose Highway, a road linking Lake Tahoe, which straddles the Nevada-California border, and south Reno. The Washoe County (Nevada) Sheriff’s Office said late Sunday that Renner had to be flown by helicopter to a hospital for treatment.

Renner owns a home in Washoe County, which includes Reno, and told the Reno Gazette Journal in 2019 that he chose the area because Reno was the right-sized city for him, it has majestic scenery and it allowed him and his family to ski frequently.

Fox News Digital has reached out to Renner’s rep for comment.

Renner was the only person involved in Sunday’s accident, and the sheriff’s office said in a news release that it is investigating.

“At approximately 9:00am on January 1, 2023, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada,” the release read.

“Upon arrival, Deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Mr. Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital,” it continued. “Mr. Renner was the only involved party in the incident.”

A source told People magazine on Monday that Renner's injuries are "extensive." The "Mayor of Kingstown" and Marvel star remains in "critical but stable condition," his rep told the outlet.
