    Jeremy Renner accident – update: Police seize Snowcat that crushed Marvel star to rule out ‘mechanical failure’

    Jeremy Renner in ‘critical but stable’ condition after ‘weather-related’ accident

    Actor Jeremy Renner has undergone two surgeries at a Nevada hospital after suffering serious injuries in a “tragic” snowploughing accident.

    The Hurt Locker star is “conscious, stable and speaking” and reportedly underwent the surgeries as part of his “long road to recovery”.

    “We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries and has undergone surgery today (2 January),” Renner’s family said in their original statement. “He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.”

    In a press conference on Tuesday (3 January), Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam described how a family member had been driving Renner’s car when it got stuck in the snow.

    “He went to retrieve his PistenBully or SnowCat – an extremely large piece of snow-moving equipment – to get his vehicle moving,” Balaam said. “After moving the vehicle from the stuck location Mr Renner got out of the PistenBully to speak to his family member and it started to roll.

    “He attempted to try and get into the driver’s seat of the PistenBully, it was at this point that he was run over by the PistenBully.”

    The plough accidentally ran over one of the actor’s legs, despite a large array of safety features, leading to major blood loss, a neighbour said.

    In his first post since the accident, Renner shared a selfie from his hospital bed with the caption: “Thank you all for your kind words. Im [sic] too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”

    Renner, 51, was met with an outpouring of support from his fans and Marvel co-stars, including Chris Hemsworth, Taika Waititi and Chris Pratt.

    Sheriff says they do not ‘suspect any foul play’

    Sheriff Darin Balaam said that Renner’s injury was being treated as a “tragic accident” by police.

    “We do not believe that Mr Renner was impaired at all and this was just a tragic accident. We do not suspect any foul play,” he said.

    “It was on a private road, he was being a great neighbour and ploughing the roads for his neighbours up there.”

    Did Jeremy Renner’s neighbour save his life?

    According to initial reports, it was Renner’s neighbour who saved his life following his accident.

    After the snowplough ran over the actor’s legs, a doctor who lived nearby to Renner allegedly put a tourniquet (a device that applies pressure and stops the flow of blood) to Renner’s legs to hold them in place until the arrival of paramedics.

    However, at a press conferencer on Tuesday (3 January), Sheriff Darin Balaam appeared to debunk the reports.

    Balaam said that there were no doctors on the scene but that neighbours immediately rushed to his aide with towels.
