Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is earning his superhero badge after surviving a nearly fatal snowplow accident and progressing as far as attending the red carpet in Los Angeles yesterday for the premier of his Disney + show, Rennervations.
Back in January, Reno, Nevada, where Renner resides, experienced a snowstorm on New Year’s Eve that left more than 17,500 homes without power. The Marvel superhero took matters into his own hands and took on the role of the neighborhood superhero, clearing snow out of people’s driveways from the massive storm. Unfortunately, the kind deed took a turn when the beloved actor was run over by the snowplow he was using, placing him in critical but stable condition.

On April 11, Renner attended the red carpet premiere of Rennervations with his daughter, Ava, 10. The two wore matching blue ensembles looking like an adorable father-daughter duo. The actor used a can for assistance when arriving at the Westwood Regency Village Theatre and held his daughter’s hand.
While completing the press interviews Renner shifted to a motorized scooter and shared with Variety that he was “really adamant” about not letting his snowplow injuries interfere with his work. “I look a little beat up right now, but I promise you this show is what’s propelling me to get better and makes me want to get better every day,” he said. “I set out a goal to be walking this carpet. And here I am enjoying it. … I’m very excited right now because we’re here.”
Jeremy Renner Battles The Storm
At the time of the accident, Renner was operating a PistenBully, which he owns, more commonly known as a commercial vehicle. However, this heavy-duty machinery has become popular for private use, especially in snowy places such as the Colorado mountains.
The 911 call obtained by TMZ revealed Renner’s state following the accident. He was heard screaming in the background of the call and was said to have “extreme difficulty” breathing due to his upper torso getting crushed and his chest collapsing.
Washoe County’s local Sheriff, Darin Balaam, shared with US media, “Throughout the community, he has been very generous and he’s one of those individuals that most of the time you don’t know he’s doing it, but he has made a tremendous impact on this community.”
The Sheriff was questioned about Renner’s right to drive the Snowcat and if he a license was necessary to which he explained, “It was on a private road, so he can drive that Snowcat. In this instance, as Mr. Renner always does, those private roads. He was being a great neighbor and he was plowing those roads for his neighbors up there. Again they had three feet.”
Unfortunately, while attempting to rescue his car from the depths of the snow he was accidentally run over by the heavy-duty machinery he had been using. The Marvel actor suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” according to a statement shared by his family. Renner underwent surgery on January 2 and spent time in the intensive care unit (ICU).
Renner has proven himself to be as much of a real-life superhero with his efforts to recover and continue working. We can’t wait to see him continue to heal and carry on!
