Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is reportedly conscious, stable, and able to speak.
Renner, 51, will be undergoing surgery today as part of his extensive recovery process, reports Extra.
The Hawkeye actor was airlifted to hospital on Sunday morning with ‘extensive injuries’ after the snowcat he was using to plow his driveway ran him over.
Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, was alone and trying to clear a path out of his Lake Tahoe home with his PistenBully, a type of snow groomer made by the German manufacturer Kassbohrer.
The vehicle’s safety features failed and caused it to roll over Renner’s leg, around a quarter mile from the property TMZ reported.

A neighbor who also happened to be a doctor put a tourniquet on his injured leg to stem the bleeding, but Renner suffered significant blood loss by the time he was airlifted from the snowy scene scene at 9.50am.
The 51-year-old remains in critical but stable condition in the hospital.
TMZ cites sources close to the star who say he suffered injuries on other parts of his body and not just the leg.

‘We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today.
