The glimpse into Renner’s recovery comes after a source for People said that the injured actor is ‘overwhelmed by the showing of love and support.’
The actor had been helping a family member with a personal vehicle that was stuck in the snow, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said during a news conference held last week on Tuesday, two days after the accident.
He used the 14,330-pound snow plow to help the family member before getting out to speak with them. During the conversation, ‘it was observed that the PistenBully [snow plow] was starting to roll,’ said Balaam. At that point, Renner tried to get back in and was run over.
The sheriff added that police do not suspect foul play, nor does it suspect Renner was at all impaired at the time. He said that neighbors ‘came out with towels’ and gave him first aid, though none were doctors.
Renner is best known for playing Hawkeye in Marvel’s Avengers series.
He has also featured in The Hurt Locker (2008) – for which he gained Academy Award nominations for best actor – as well as Mission: Impossible (2011 and 2015) and Hansel and Gretel (2013).
