Thousands of friends and fans took to the comment section to wish the actor well in his long  recovery.

“Continued prayers your way brutha,” fellow actor Chris Pratt wrote. “Sending so much love n healing!” Vanessa Hudgens added.

Renner was in Reno, Nevada, helping a family member and neighbours in the snow when he was run over by a snowplough.

He was helping someone stranded in the snow,” Schieve, who said she is friends with Renner, told the publication. “He is always helping others.”

At the time of the accident, parts of western Nevada were covered with snow. The Reno area received around 15 – 30 centimetres of snow at elevations below 1,500 metres between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and up to 45 centimetres at higher elevations, according to the National Weather Service in Reno.

Renner has shared multiple videos and photos on his verified social media accounts showing him in snowy conditions, including one Instagram video posted two weeks ago in which the actor appears to be driving a snow plough.

The accident left Renner in a serious but stable condition, with multiple chest and facial injuries. He has also since undergone surgery.
