Jeremy Renner's sweet move prior to news of accident and hospitalisation
Jeremy's tragic incident happened after a new year storm left around 3ft of fresh snowfall on the ground, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said in a press conference earlier this week.
The actor was run over by a snow plough after helping a family member
A family member driving the actor's car had got stuck in the snow near his house, the sheriff said. Using his snow plough, he successfully towed the car free.
He then got out to talk to his relative, but the snow plough began to move while empty.
Jeremy was trying to get back into the driver's seat to stop it moving, when the "extremely large" piece of equipment ran him over, Mr Balaam said.
Following the news of the accident, his publicist Samantha Mast said in a statement: "As of now, we can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today.
"His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care."
Jeremy's real-life drama comes just days before he is due to reappear on our screens as Mike McLusky in season two of the Paramount Plus seris Mayor of Kingstown. Here you can a see a trailer for the series.
