A publicist for the 51-year-old “Avengers” star said in a statement to The Associated Press that Renner is in an intensive care unit after having surgery on Monday.

Renner “suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in the accident, The New York Times reported.

“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve,” said the statement, according to the AP. “They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

A source close to the actor told CNN that he has required two surgeries to address injuries he suffered in the accident.

In a news release, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said Renner was the only person involved in the accident but did not say how it happened.

Renner has lived in Washoe County for approximately 10 years and told the Reno Gazette Journal in 2019 that he moved there because of the “majestic” mountains and strong sense of community.

Renner is a two-time acting Oscar nominee for his work in “The Hurt Locker” and “The Town,” according to the AP. He is also known for playing Hawkeye in Marvel’s movie and television universe.
