Jeremy Renner has been allowed home from hospital to recover after a snowplow accident left him ‘worse than anyone knows’ – and he’s already warning others to ‘be safe’ in the deep Nevada snow.
The Mayor of Kingstown star, 52, announced on Monday night that he made it home in time to watch the season two airing of his crime drama after he was nearly crushed to death by his 14,330-pound snowplow on New Year’s Day.
Renner shared the good news on a promotional tweet for the series which aired on Sunday.
‘Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home,’ Renner wrote.
The news comes a day after friends revealed that Renner’s injuries are much worse than feared and that he ‘nearly bled out’ and ‘almost died’ while waiting for help to arrive.
Renner posted photos of Nevada calling it his ‘happy place.’ He also warned people to be careful on the roads

The Hawkeye star appears to be eager to get back onto the snow at his Lake Tahoe property.
Renner posted two pictures to Instagram on Monday from Nevada – one of snow-covered rooftops with a message saying he missed his ‘happy place’ and another warning people to ‘be safe’ along with an image of a road covered in deep snow.
The actor is reportedly aware of the extent of his injuries and has a long road to recovery ahead of him, with friends saying it could take up to two years before he is back in fighting shape.
‘It’s much worse than anyone knows. Jeremy is very aware of the fact that he almost died out there,’ a source told RadarOnline.
‘The right side of Jeremy’s chest was crushed, and his upper torso had collapsed. He also had a bad head wound that was bleeding and a leg injury.’
‘Word is the damage to Jeremy’s chest was so substantial it had to be reconstructed in surgery.’
Emergency services had to airlift the television star to the hospital were he later underwent surgery on January 2 to place metal pins around his legs, along with chest surgery.
‘So far, he’s had two surgeries and he will likely require more in the weeks ahead on his leg. Doctors tend to space out operations to allow time for the body’s natural healing process to kick in, and that’s the case here,’ the source continued.
‘Jeremy was in a lot of pain, and was having difficulty breathing. He knew he was in bad shape and that he might not make it out of this.’
As Renner’s recovery continues, he remains ‘doped up’ and with ‘tubes’ to help him breath.
