Actor Jeremy Renner revealed that he broke more than 30 bones following a snow plough accident which left him in intensive care.
Posting on social media on Saturday, the 52-year-old, said that 2023 started with “tragedy” for his entire family, after the 6,500kg ‘PistenBully’ left him with “30 plus broken bones” on New Years Day.
Best known for playing Marvel’s Hawkeye, Renner shared a photo of himself receiving treatment in a hospital bed.
“I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I…” he wrote.
“Much love and appreciation to you all. These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all.”
The star has shared numerous updates on his condition since the accident. In one selfie on 3 January, he described himself as “too messed up” to type.
The incident occurred on a ranch in Reno, Nevada, where the actor lives.
On New Year’s Eve, a day before the accident, the area was hit by a winter storm, which left thousands of homes without power and hundreds of roads closed.
As Renner tried to clear snow off a road near Lake Tahoe, for a relative’s vehicle, the plough started to roll by itself.
A log of a 911 emergency call described the actor as being “completely crushed” by the machine, as the right side of his chest collapsed and his upper torso was crushed.
He returned to his family home earlier this month, where he was able to watch himself in Mayor of Kingstown, the Paramount+ TV series in which he stars.
