Actor Jeremy Renner suffered a serious injury last week after an accident near his home.
“We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” a representative for Renner told Variety.
“His family is with him, and he is receiving excellent care,” the representative said.
Details were not revealed. Renner owns a home in Nevada, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal. The region around Reno was hit with a snowstorm on New Year’s Eve, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
In 2015, Renner posted an Instagram photo of himself with a SnowCat vehicle used for snow removal and trail grooming.
Renner has posted other images of the snow by Lake Tahoe.
