Jeremy Renner in 'critical but stable' condition after 'weather-related' accident

Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is reportedly in a "critical but stable" condition in hospital after a "weather-related accident".

A spokesperson for the actor told Deadline the 51-year-old was airlifted to hospital on Sunday (1 January) after the incident, which occurred while he was ploughing snow.

The spokesperson said Renner was with his family and "receiving excellent care".

It came as dozens of people were killed across the US amid blizzard conditions.

The Arctic blast stirred up heavy winds and snow, trapping some residents inside their houses with snowdrifts and knocking out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses.

The scope of the storm has been nearly unprecedented, stretching from the Great Lakes near Canada down to the Rio Grande along the border with Mexico.

Renner previously tweeted about the snow at his US ranch in December, writing: "Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke."
