Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is in intensive care and will undergo a second operation while doctors treat his “widespread injuries” following a snowplow accident.
The star suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after being run over by the snowcat he was using to plow his driveway.
Renner, 51, underwent first surgery today on Monday as part of a full recovery process, but it has now been revealed that the superhero star will require further surgeries on a long road to recovery.
A statement from his family said how grateful they are to the “incredible doctors and nurses taking care of him.
“They are also enormously overwhelmed and grateful for the love and support from his fans,” the statement added.
The Hawkeye actor was airlifted to hospital on Sunday morning following the accident.
Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, was alone trying to clear a way out of his Lake Tahoe home in his PistenBully, a type of snow groomer made by German manufacturer Kassbohrer.
The vehicle’s safety features failed, causing it to roll over Renner’s leg about a quarter-mile from the property, TMZ reported.

A neighbor who also happened to be a doctor placed a tourniquet on his injured leg to stop the bleeding, but Renner suffered significant blood loss when he was airlifted from the snowy scene at 9.50am.
The 51-year-old is in critical but stable condition at the hospital.
TMZ cites sources close to the star as saying he sustained injuries to other parts of his body and not just his leg.
It is unclear how long he has owned the PistenBully or whether he bought it used.

The type of PistenBully that Renner owns is no longer offered for sale on the company’s website, but similar models are referred to as “vintage” on second-hand sales sites.
The actor’s representatives confirmed yesterday that his family was with him at the hospital.
“We can confirm that Jeremy is in critical but stable condition and has sustained injuries after a weather related accident while snow plowing earlier this morning.
“His family is with him and he is being well taken care of.”
