Two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner best known for his role as Clint Barton/Hawkeye in the Marvel cinematic universe has shared his health update a month after being involved in a grisly accident.

3 weeks ago, Jeremy got run over by a snowplow, which weighs like 7 tonnes, while clearing out a road outside his home in Reno, Nevada.

He was using his own snowplow so his family could get out after a heavy storm.

He is now out of ICU and was more than happy to share his recovery journey with his fans.

Hawkeye shared a picture of him undergoing physiotherapy as he revealed that he'd broken more than 30 bones during the accident.

The 51-year-old celebrated actor also took time to thank everyone who'd prayed for him and sent messages of quick recovery. 

"Morning workouts, and resolutions all changed this particular new year…. Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love ❤️ 

I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and me…. Much love and appreciation to you all. 

These 30-plus broken bones will mend, and grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all 🙏❤️🙏" Jeremy's post read.

Jeremy according to his representative, Sam Mast, suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopaedic injuries and was airlifted to the hospital following the grisly accident.

According to the county sheriff, the star had gone to speak to a family member when the snowplow started to roll toward him, adding that Jeremy got run over when he attempted to get into the driver's seat to stop it.

He was aided by neighbours at the scene, one of whom was a doctor before first responders arrived at the scene.

The US was battered by a major snowstorm over the New Year weekend, with at least 60 people in eight states killed.

Thousands of homes experienced power cuts, and travel was severely disrupted.
