Rose Highway area home in Nevada. Sheriff Darin Balaam said that Renner had been run over by a snowcat, an engine-powered snow-clearing vehicle, after he tried to get back into it when it started to roll away.

The Hawkeye star was airlifted from his home and underwent surgery for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.

The following day, he shared his first video update from the hospital with footage of himself getting his hair washed during a bed bath. Renner included the caption, “ICU spa moment to lift my spirits.”

The actor, who turned 52 on Jan. 7 at the Reno hospital, sent a note to the medical staff on the night before his birthday: “Thank you Renowned Medical ICU team for beginning this journey.”
