There was a lot of concern for Jeremy Renner following his serious accident on New Year's Day near his home in Northern Nevada, but the actor underwent successful surgery after being airlifted to the ER, and regained consciousness a couple of days later.
The Hawkeye star has now shared another positive update on his status, revealing that he has left the hospital and is recovering at home with his family.
There were reports that Renner may have had his leg amputated, but, thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case.
There was initially some confusion as to what actually caused the accident, but it eventually came to light that Renner was run-over by his own snowplow when he attempted to regain control of the vehicle.
“After successfully towing his personal vehicle from its stuck location, Mr. Renner got out of his PistenBully to speak with his family member,” Sheriff Darin Balaam said in an official statement. “At this point, it is observed that the PistenBully started to roll. In an effort to stop the rolling PistenBully, Mr. Renner attempts to get back into the driver seat of the PistenBully. Based on our investigation, it’s at this point that Mr. Renner is run over by the PistenBully.”
This is obviously great news, but Renner still has a long road to full recovery ahead. We hope to see him back in the MCU firing arrows at bad guys by the time Avengers: The Kang Dynasty comes our way.
