LOS ANGELES — Actor Jeremy Renner, who played Hawkeye in the Marvel Avengers movies and was hospitalized after a traumatic injury while plowing snow, was recovering on Tuesday and posted an image on his Instagram account thanking his fans for their wishes. The actor posted a selfie from his hospital bed in Nevada, showing him looking bruised with oxygen tubes in his nose.

“Thank you all for your kind words,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.” Mr. Renner’s publicist and local officials said on Monday that he was in critical but stable condition after his accident on New Year’s Day. He “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in the accident, his publicist said.

Mr. Renner, 51, was nominated for an Academy Award for best actor for his work in the 2008 film The Hurt Locker, which also won the Oscar for best picture. He received a supporting actor nomination for his work in The Town from 2010.

After his success in The Hurt Locker, Mr. Renner starred in multiple Marvel projects as well as in two Mission: Impossible films, Arrival, American Hustle, and The Bourne Legacy which was partly filmed in the Philippines, among others.

Mr. Renner has owned a home in Washoe County, Nevada, for several years, according to the Reno Gazette Journal. That area in northern Nevada received heavy snowfall on New Year’s Eve. The National Weather Service had a winter storm warning over the weekend in the area.

In a media briefing on Tuesday, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said that Mr. Renner was run over by a snow plow that began rolling by itself after he used it to dig his car, which was being driven by a family member, out of a mound of snow.

Mr. Renner used his plow, described by Mr. Balaam as a PistenBully that weighed over 14,000 pounds, to extract the car. He went to talk to the family member when the machine began to roll.

“In an effort to stop the rolling PistenBully, Mr. Renner attempted to get back into the driver’s seat … it’s at this point that Mr. Renner was run over,” Mr. Balaam said, adding no foul play was suspected. — Reuters
