New year’s day, hollywood actor jeremy renner was involved in a serious accident when he was run over by a snow plough. he suffered a blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries, and was listed as critical for days. many celebrities wrote messages of support, including his marvel co-stars chris hemsworth and chris evans.
Accident happened after a severe snowstorm hit the us, dumping heavy snowfall across several states. it occurred near renner’s home in nevada while he was using his own snow plough to rescue a family member who had got stuck in the snow.
Was trying to get back into the driver’s seat to stop the plough moving, when the “extremely large” piece of equipment ran him over. sensitivities around his recovery led to promotional images of his tv show, mayor of kingstown, being edited to remove injuries from his face. renner said the incident had been a “tragedy for my entire family” but had transformed into “uniting actionable love”.
