After being hurt while out clearing snow in one of his commercial snow plows at his ranch house between Reno and Lake Tahoe, Jeremy Renner is currently listed in a “critical but stable” condition.
The 51-year-old Marvel star Jeremy Renner was airlifted to hospital on Sunday after police were called to his rural mansion in the Sierra Nevada mountains on the border between California and Nevada.
With his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco, Renner has a nine-year-old daughter named Ava. Renner uses several snow plows to clear his long private driveway and the local roads and paths.

His agent has not revealed how the actor managed to hurt himself so severely. He is “critical but stable,” according to the spokesman.
On Sunday morning, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office near Reno was called to Mr. Renner’s ranch residence.
Public information officer Kristin Vietti stated that “Jeremy Renner was the only involved party” and that the major accident investigation team was looking into the incident. “Upon arrival, deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital,” she added.
The accident came after around five feet of snow fell overnight between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day as a massive winter storm again hammered the region, claiming dozens of lives.
