Jeremy Renner was crushed by a snowplow
On January 1, the public was informed that the prodigy was crushed by the 14,330-pound snow plow. The incident happened at Renner’s Tahoe home while he was trying to prevent snow from trapping a family member’s car.
Instead, Renner’s snowplow ran him over, causing serious injuries. The actor had to undergo two surgeries in one day to alleviate the damage caused by the large snow removal equipment. The snow plow is assumed to be either a Sno-Cat or a PistenBully.
Since the incident, Renner has occasionally taken to social media to update his fans on how he’s been doing since the accident. A day after the incident, Renner posted a picture of himself in the hospital, thanked fans for their kind words and said he was “too broken to type.”
Jeremy Renner was released from the hospital on January 17
On January 5, Renner again posted a video on social media in which he can be seen with his eyes closed while wearing an oxygen mask.

The read, “A ‘not so great’ ICU DAY turned into a wonderful spa day with my sister and mom. Thank you very much.”
After several days in the hospital, Renner returned home on January 17. The actor announced the news as he told his many fans that he was looking forward to watching the mayor of Kingstown at home. The season premiere of the Paramount+ series aired at that time.
In response to a tweet from the show’s official account, Renner wrote: “Besides my recovery brain fog, I was so excited to watch episode 201 at home with my family.”
