US actor Jeremy Renner has thanked fans for their support after he was seriously injured by his snow plough. Sharing a picture of his bruised face on Instagram, Renner said he was “too messed up now to type”. The Avengers star was airlifted to hospital on Sunday after the accident outside his home in Reno, Nevada. Renner was run over by his own snow plough, which weighs at least 14,330lb (6.5 tonnes) – three times as heavy as a car – the local sheriff said. He suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries, his publicist said on Monday. At that time he was in a stable but critical condition in intensive care. In an Instagram post from his hospital bed on Tuesday evening, Renner, 51, wrote: “Thank you all for your kind words. I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”(BBC)…[+]
