Hollywood star Jeremy Renner has shared his first video update since his snow ploughing accident at the weekend that left him in critical condition.

Renner suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries after the New Year’s Day incident that took place near his Mt. Rose home about 25 miles outside Reno.

The Hawkeye star and two-time Oscar nominee underwent surgery following the accident and remains in intensive care in stable condition.

In a Twitter post on Thursday (5 January), the actor wrote: “A ‘not so great’ ICU, turned into an amazing spa day with my sis and mama. Thank you sooooo much.”

This was accompanied by a video where Renner can be seen in his hospital bed being looked after by his family.

In the clip, he can be heard joking: “Check it out. That’s the first shower in definitely a week or so. Gross.”

Earlier in the week, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office revealed that Renner was run over by a 14,000-pound (6350kg) Sno-Cat while talking to a family member on New Year’s Day,

They said the actor was using the snow-clearing vehicle – also known as a PistenBully – to free a vehicle of his, being driven by a family member, from getting stuck in snow when the accident happened at around 9am, Deadline reported.

After Renner was able to free the car, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said the actor got out of the PistenBully to talk to the family member and the machine started to roll.

Renner then tried to get back into the driver’s seat, at which point the PistonBully ran over him, Balaam explained.

“An eyewitness detailed seeing Mr. Renner getting into the PistonBully, and not seeing him again until the PistonBully came to a rest in a pile of snow in front of his driveway,” he stated.

“We don’t suspect any foul play.”

The sheriff wished Renner a “full and speedy recovery” and said police do not believe the performer was “impaired at all”.

“We believe this is a tragic accident,” he added.
