Jeremy Renner's snow shoveling injuries 'worse than anyone knew'

Jeremy Renner’s snow shoveling injuries ‘worse than anyone knew’

A new report says Jeremy Renner’s injuries from the snow plow accident are “worse than anyone knows” and could require two years for a full recovery.

The Marvel actor suffered serious injuries in a New Year’s Day incident where he was run over by a heavy machine near his home in Reno, Nevada.

Renner was airlifted to the hospital with “severe chest and bone injuries,” according to a statement from his representative.

He underwent surgery and is still in the hospital, having shared some selfies and videos since then.

However, a source close to the Hawkeye actor told Radar Online that his condition is worse than what has been publicly revealed.

“It’s a lot worse than anyone knows,” the source said. “Jeremy is very aware of the fact that he almost died there.”

Renner, 42, was helping a stranded motorist by clearing snow when his Kässbohrer PistenBully snow plow started rolling on its own. As he tried to jump behind the wheel and stop it, the 6.5-tonne plow ran over him and crushed his leg.

The Oscar-nominated actor had “extreme difficulty” breathing and was bleeding profusely from his head. The right side of his chest collapsed as his upper torso was smashed by the car, according to a 911 record obtained by TMZ.

“The word is that the damage to Jeremy’s chest was so significant it had to be reconstructed in surgery,” a source told Radar Online.

An insider told the outlet that it could take two years for Renner to fully recover.

“So far, he has had two surgeries and will likely need more in the coming weeks on his leg,” the source said. “Doctors tend to space out operations to allow time for the body’s natural healing process to begin, and that’s the case here.”
