Hollywood star Jeremy Renner is making good progress after sustaining serious injuries in a snowplow accident that took place on New Year’s Day.

Renner has been in hospital since January 1, with fans around the world flooding social media with thoughts and prayers.

Speaking to People magazine, the star’s sister, Kym Renner, said: “We are so thrilled with his progress.

“If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn’t mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn’t feel more positive about the road ahead.”

As per a harrowing 911 call log obtained by Fox News, Renner, famous for his work in The Hurt Locker, The Bourne Legacy, American Hustle, and as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, amongst other films and shows, was “completely crushed” beneath a snowcat after an accident near his home in Lake Tahoe.


Reports state that the actor was trying to help a family member get their car unstuck from the estimated three-feet of snow that had fallen the night previous. While pinned under the snowplow, Renner apparently had difficulty “breathing”.
