Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner didn’t kick off the new year well due to an unfortunate accident on New Year’s Day. The actor had to be taken to hospital by helicopter, where he has since undergone surgery. Now that it seems that Renner is relatively comfortable with the accident, the first details are coming out about what exactly happened.
Heavy duty snow shovel
According to a new report, the accident occurred at 9:00 a.m. and Renner was “completely crushed” by a snowplow weighing nearly 6,500 pounds on that New Year’s Day. Due to the release of the 911 call, we know that the right side of Renner’s chest “collapsed” and his upper body was crushed by the machine.

During the call to 911, presumably from one of his neighbours, the Marvel actor could be heard in the background having “extremely difficult” breathing and bleeding profusely from his head at the same time. The 51-year-old actor was airlifted to hospital and underwent surgery.
Birthday in intensive care
Renner would still be hospitalized in intensive care, where he celebrated his 52nd birthday last Sunday. In his Instagram Story, he shared a video of youth organization The Base Chicago, with whom he often worked, who wish him a happy birthday. In the comments, Renner responds, “I love you all so much!!!! Thank you 🙏. You guys made my spirit sing!!!!”
