Actor Jeremy Renner is out of surgery but remains hospitalized in critical condition after suffering injuries from an accident with a snow plow.

In a statement to EW, a representative for Renner confirmed that the actor "has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries" after a New Year's Day incident with a snow plow on his property in Nevada. He underwent surgery on Jan. 2 and remains in the intensive care unit in "critical but stable condition."

"Jeremy's family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families," the statement continues. "They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans."

Around 9 a.m. local time on Jan. 1, the Washoe County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of a "traumatic injury" on a highway near Reno, Nev. After arriving, they coordinated transport of Renner, the only individual involved in the incident, to a local hospital via helicopter. The sheriff's office is currently looking into the circumstances of the incident, but did not provide additional details yet.

Much of the United States has been experiencing extreme examples of cold weather this month. The Reno Gazette Journal reported that thousands of Nevada residents went without power this weekend following heavy snowfall, and the temperature was in the teens on Sunday when Renner's accident occurred.

Renner currently stars in the Paramount+ series Mayor of Kingstown, which is set to premiere its second season later this month. He also plays the superhero Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
