Jeremy Renner is ‘crushing all the progress goals’ as he recovers from snowplow accident

The actor's sister provided a health update on his recovery and said she's ‘thrilled’ with how he's traveling.

Jeremy Renner’s sister has revealed the actor is 'crushing all the progress goals’ after being involved in a snowplow accident.

Kym Renner provided a health update to People magazine and said she is ‘thrilled’ with her brother's recovery so far.

She told the outlet: "If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn't mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn't feel more positive about the road ahead."

The Marvel star was hit by his own vehicle outside his home near Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains on New Year's Day as he attempted to free a stranded car.

The Hawkeye star was then airlifted and transported to Reno Hospital in a 'critical but stable condition'.

A representative told Deadline: “We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023.

"Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families.

"They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

The actor made his first post since the horrific accident last week, where he thanked the public for their overwhelming support: “Thank you all for your kind words.

"I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”

The Washoe County sheriff's office confirmed they had 'responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada'.

The sheriff's office said a powerful winter storm had covered more than two feet (0.6 meters) of snow on the area Saturday night into the morning.

The country's sheriff Darin Balaam held a press conference where he shared the actor had been 'run over' by an 'extremely large piece of snow-removal equipment' weighing 'at least 14,330 pounds', adding that the actor's PistenBully became stuck.

"He went to retrieve his PistenBully or SnowCat – an extremely large piece of snow-moving equipment – to get his vehicle moving," Balaam said.

"After moving the vehicle from the stuck location Mr Renner got out of the PistenBully to speak to his family member and it started to roll.

"He attempted to try and get into the driver’s seat of the PistenBully. It was at this point that he was run over by the PistenBully."

The actor is currently in the ICU recovering.
