Renner’s accident occurred Jan. 1 after he tried to help remove a family member’s car from being stuck in the snow near his Tahoe home. The actor’s snow plow ended up running him over and critically injuring him. Renner underwent two surgeries the next day. Renner’s snow plow was a PistenBully or Sno-Cat, an extremely large piece of snow removal equipment weighing at least 14,330 pounds.
In the aftermath of the accident, Renner has frequently used social media to keep his fans updated on his health. In a video post published Jan. 5, Renner appeared in the hospital and was in good spirits as he joked about having a spa day with his sister and mother. Renner’s eye was swollen shut in the video, and he was seen breathing out of an oxygen mask at the time.
Variety confirmed Jan. 17 that Renner had left the hospital and returned home. He more or less announced the news himself when he told fans on social media that he was “very excited” to watch the season premiere of his Paramount+ series “Mayor of Kingstown” at home.
