Jeremy Renner celebrates his 52nd birthday with a message of thanks to his medical support team. The actor continues to recover from injuries sustained in a snow plow accident.
“Thank you to the renowned ICU medical team for starting this journey,” Renner wrote alongside a picture shared to his Instagram story.
The snap shows the actor in a hospital bed surrounded by medics.
The post late Friday is the third update Renner has shared since his hospitalization. He underwent two surgeries for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after being crushed by a snowplow near his Nevada home on New Year’s Day.
The Marvel star was clearing snow from a private driveway when the accident happened, his publicist previously told CNN.
Renner also shared a short video of fans dancing to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” to wish him a happy birthday, and he thanked them for the “birthday love.”
Several other actors also sent Renner birthday wishes. “Happy Birthday to one of the toughest guys I know,” Chris Evans wrote on his Instagram Story, along with a picture of Renner. “Sending so much love your way.”
Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said at a news conference Tuesday that while Renner was not in the driver’s seat, Renner’s snow groomer, a motorized snow removal machine, began rolling away.
Balaam said he was injured trying to get back into the machine. Renner’s family members were with him when he was injured.
Authorities received an emergency call about the accident on New Year’s Day. The highway was closed due to severe winter weather. Because of the difficult weather, a helicopter was used to transport Renner to the hospital.
