The Hawkeye actor was taken to hospital with “serious injuries” on Sunday morning after the snow cat he used to plow his driveway ran over him.
Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, was alone trying to clear a path from his Lake Tahoe home with his PistenBully, a type of snowplow made by German manufacturer Kassbohrer.
The vehicle’s safety features failed and caused it to roll over Renner’s leg about a quarter mile from the property TMZ reported.

It’s unclear how long he’s owned the PistenBully trimmer, or if he bought it second-hand.
The type of PistenBully Renner owns is no longer for sale on the company’s website, but similar models are described as “vintage” on used sales sites.
Representatives for the actor confirmed yesterday that his family was in the hospital with him.
“We can confirm that Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries sustained following a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today.
