RENO, NEVADA: For the first time since his accident, the family of Jeremy Renner has come forward with a statement regarding the actor’s health condition after the horrifying accident involving a snow-plowing machine near his house in Reno, Nevada. The statement noted that the ‘Hawkeye’ star suffered “blunt chest trauma” because of the accident and underwent surgery.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Renner was airlifted to the hospital after a snow-plowing machine named Snowcat went over his leg, resulting in heavy blood loss. However, the latest statement released by his family confirms that the injuries are much worse than the people were expecting them to be and the harsh weather conditions are making things more and more problematic. While talking about the actor’s condition, his family confirmed to People that Renner suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” after the accident and had to go through surgery. Even after the successful surgery, the actor continues to remain in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in “critical but stable condition”.

The actor was plowing the road outside his residence in Reno and the Snowcat machine ran over his leg due to which he lost a lot of blood. Thankfully, his neighbor, who turned out to be a doctor, treated his leg by building a “tourniquet” until the team of medics arrived. It was later revealed that the safety feature, that stops an accident like that, failed to stop the machine and ran over the actor’s leg.
