The intense winter storm that blanketed the Tahoe region with four feet of snow caused many problems for locals and visitors alike over the New Years’ weekend. For one A-list Hollywood actor, a snow-plowing accident after the storm has put him in critical condition in the hospital.
Jeremy Renner, known for playing Hawkeye in Marvel’s Avengers franchise, is in critical but stable condition after an accident at his home in the Mount Rose-Ski Tahoe area. The “traumatic injury” occurred Sunday morning after the area was hit with multiple feet of snow in just 48 hours.
“His family is with him, and he is receiving excellent care,” the representative, Samantha Mast, said in a statement on Monday.
Renner has posted multiple Instagram stories showing him operating a snowplow near his Tahoe home. He even tweeted a photo of his car buried in snow with the caption “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
Renner has twice been nominated for an Oscar for his roles in “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” He currently stars in “Mayor Kingstown” and is scheduled to release his new show “Rennervations” on Disney+ early this year.
