American movie star Jeremy Renner, known for his role as Hawkeye in several Marvel blockbusters, was in a critical but stable condition following an accident, his representative said.

Renner, 51, had been ploughing snow when he suffered serious injuries, a representative told Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday.

“We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident while ploughing snow earlier today,” Renner’s representative said

Renner owns property near Mt Rose-Ski Tahoe, an area near Reno, Nevada that has been hit by winter storms, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

He recently posted on social media about severe weather conditions in the area around Lake Tahoe, which borders California and Nevada and is a world-renowned skiing destination.

On December 13, Renner tweeted a photo of a car buried by snow with the caption, “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
