This comes only days after Renner was involved in a brutal snowplow accident this past holiday weekend. The Avengers star had briefly stepped out of his Snowcat while helping a family member dig their car out of the snow when the vehicle started rolling towards him. He was unable to get out of the way in time and was left with full body injuries.
