According to his publicist, the actor suffered blunt chest trauma and needed two operations, and was discharged from the hospital on January 16.
There is good news for everyone waiting for an update on Jeremy Renner's health. On March 26, the actor posted a video on Twitter regarding his health after breaking more than 30 bones in a snowplow accident in January.
In the video, he can be seen walking on an anti-gravity treadmill for the first time since the accident earlier this year which left him critically injured. The video is captioned, "I now have to find OTHER things to occupy my time so my body can recover from my will. #minduful #intended #recovery."
The same video was also posted on Renner's Instagram stories on Sunday. He wrote, "Now is the time for my body to rest and recover from my will." According to a Washoe County Sheriff's office's report, the "Hawkeye" actor was towing his nephew's truck out of the snow on a private road near his house in Reno, Nevada, when the accident took place.
The report states that the plow started sliding down a hill, so Renner got out without applying emergency brakes. Then the plow began to slide towards his nephew, who was in his truck. According to TODAY, Renner tried to step up on the track to divert the plow or to stop it. "Renner was pulled under the Pistenbully, and the track rolled over him," the report states. "Renner suffered injuries to his torso, extremities, face and head."
Neighbors rushed to help the actor as he waited 40 minutes for first responders to reach the location due to weather conditions, Washoe County Darin Balaam said at a news conference. "What I can tell you was there was no doctor on the scene," Balaam shared. "It was some good neighbors... that came out with some towels and rendered some aid."

Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love. I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I... Much love and appreciation to you all. These 30-plus broken bones will mend, and grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all," Renner wrote.

In February, Renner posted a video of him doing physical therapy for the first time. The actor has been rehabilitating his leg, using it to pedal with the assistance of a pole-like tool. He wrote on Instagram, "Whatever it takes," a famous line from the Marvel movie, "Avengers: Endgame."
Moreover, Disney announced this month that Renner's new vehicle renovation show called, "Rennervations." will stream on the platform next month. According to Variety, in the series, he will be seen traveling the world to decommission vehicles and refurbish them for new users.
"I've been on this journey for many years, and I started in my community by building vehicles for people in need," Renner said about the show. "But a few years ago, I thought, 'How can I plus this up and create a bigger impact on a whole community?' And that's what this show does. This is one of my biggest passions and it's a driving force in my recovery, and I can't wait for the world to see it."
