US actor Jeremy Renner (52) has been released from the hospital and returned home. He was admitted to the clinic on New Year's Day after his serious snow plow accident. Renner now brought his fans up to date. He commented on a tweet from the account of his Paramount series "Mayor of Kingstown". The Hollywood star wrote, "Out of my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to see ep. 2.01 at home with my family."
The 52-year-old was seriously injured in the accident at the beginning of the year. Renner was run over by his own snowcat on New Year's Day on his mountainside property a few miles from Lake Tahoe, Sheriff Darin Balaam said at a news conference. He is said to have previously tried to free a family member's car that got stuck after a heavy snowstorm.
When he noticed that the seven-ton vehicle had started to roll when he had briefly got out, Renner is said to have tried to jump back in. According to the sheriff, that's when the actor was pulled over and suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries. Due to the previous snowstorm, the emergency services had trouble getting to the scene of the accident. The star could only be flown to the hospital and operated on about an hour after the emergency call.
Jeremy Renner has been nominated twice for an Oscar, for his roles in The Hurt Locker (2008) and The Town (2010). The actor is also the star of the Paramount series Mayor of Kingstown, Disney's Marvel series Hawkeye, and the Avengers and Captain America films. He was also seen in the "Mission Impossible" franchise.
