The actor Jeremy Renner was hospitalized on Sunday after a “traumatic injury,” according to the Washoe County, Nev., sheriff’s office.
A representative for Mr. Renner told The Associated Press on Sunday that he was in critical but stable condition after an accident while plowing snow. “His family is with him, and he is receiving excellent care,” the representative said.
Mr. Renner, 51, has played Hawkeye, a member of Marvel’s Avengers superheroes team, in several movies and a television series. He has also twice been nominated for an Oscar, for his roles in “The Hurt Locker” (2008) and “The Town” (2010).
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said that it responded to the emergency at approximately 9 a.m. on Sunday in the area of Mount Rose Highway in Reno. Mr. Renner, who was flown to a nearby hospital, was the only person involved, the statement said.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning over the weekend for the areas around Reno, in addition to a warning that was in place for the Lake Tahoe Basin. On Saturday and Sunday, the Tahoe Basin at lake level received between 20 and 24 inches of snow, the Weather Service in Reno said.
The Weather Service on Sunday advised those with travel plans through the Sierra Nevada to prepare for winter weather driving conditions and warned of icy roads as additional storms arrive.
