Jeremy Renner Commits To Physical And Mental Recovery After Scary Snow Plow Accident

Jeremy Renner is thankfully on the mend after his horrific snowplow accident that occurred on January 1 at his Nevada home. The actor was helping his nephew dig his truck out from the snow with his snowcat vehicle but it started sliding, forcing Renner to exit without securing the emergency brake, CNN reported. Renner saw the vehicle heading toward his nephew and attempted to jump inside in order to divert it. The "Hawkeye" star was pulled under by the seven-ton snowplow and suffered blunt chest trauma, with over 30 broken bones. Renner's nephew provided aid until medics came and airlifted him to a nearby hospital, where he had to undergo two surgeries for his injuries.

Two days after the incident, Renner shared a picture of his bruised face on Instagram and gave an update to fans. "Thank you all for your kind words. Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all," he wrote. It's been nearly two months after the accident, and Renner is working hard to recover both physically and mentally.
