'I'm too messed up now': Bruised Jeremy Renner posts hospital bed selfie as he recovers from accident
RENO, NAVADA: Jeremy Renner is recovering from several injuries after the horrifying accident involving a snow-plowing machine near his house in Reno. His family revealed in a statement that the ‘Hawkeye’ star suffered “blunt chest trauma” because of the accident and underwent surgery. A neighbor claimed that Renner was plowing the road outside of his Tahoe home when a snow-plowing machine went over his leg. The neighbor, being a doctor, treated his leg by building a "tourniquet" until the team of medics arrived. Days after the accident, Renner addressed the mishap.
The MCU actor, who suffered heavy blood loss and was airlifted to the hospital, posted a selfie on his Instagram talking to his fans straight from the hospital. The visibly injured actor who sustained injuries even on his face captioned the image, "Thank you all for your kind words.. Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all."
Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam previously explained that the 'Mayor of Kingstown' star had been assisting a family member with a personal vehicle stuck in the snow on Sunday, January 1. The 'Hawkeye' actor has undergone two surgeries that involved surgeons placing metal pins around his leg. Kristin Vitti, the public information officer, confirmed that the actor was taken to the hospital in the helicopter and the Sheriff's team was "investigating" the circumstances of the accident. His family is with him. He continues to remain in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Meanwhile, the statement provided by his family read, "We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd, 2023. He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition."
The statement further read, "Jeremy's family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve, and the Carano and Murdock families. They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans." Renner loves big machines and has a vast collection for himself. It was also revealed that he used a 14,330-pound snowplow to successfully assist the family member before getting out to speak with them.
