WASHOE COUNTY, Nev. — Actor Jeremy Renner posted for the first time on social media Tuesday evening just days after his snow plow accident in Washoe County, Nevada.
Renner posted on Instagram a photo from his hospital bed and a thank you for “your kind words.”
“I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all,” said Renner on Instagram.
Chris Pratt, Steve Aoki, Vanessa Hudgens, and many others commented on Renner’s post wishing him well and sending him prayers for his recovery.
Renner’s publicist in a statement to The Associated Press said that Renner is in an intensive care unit after having surgery on Monday.
Renner “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in the accident, The New York Times reported.
Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve told the Reno Gazette-Journal Monday, according to the AP, that Renner was helping a motorist who was stranded outside of his house on New Year’s day when he was reportedly run over by his own vehicle. The accident left Renner with chest and orthopedic injuries.
In a news release, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said Renner was the only person involved in the accident but did not say how it happened.
