Hawkeye star Jeremy Renner revealed more details about his injuries following the accident involving a snowplow which saw him airlifted to hospital on New Year’s Day.
In a post on Instagram, Renner shared a photo of himself starting his recovery through physical therapy.

Much love and appreciation to you all,” he wrote. “These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens.”
In a statement released by Renner’s family, it was revealed that he had suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.” The statement confirmed that the actor went into surgery for his injuries on Jan. 2. The accident occurred while Renner was using his Snowcat to plow snow on his property in Reno, Nevada, as well as the private road on which he lives. After exiting the Snowcat, the vehicle began to roll away. When Renner attempted to climb back inside, he was run over, resulting in his significant injuries.
