Jeremy Renner is sending his fans a message of gratitude following his hospitalization due to a snow plow accident.
The Marvel star, 51, shared his first Instagram post since the accident on Tuesday, days after he was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
“Thank you all for your kind words,” Renner captioned a selfie of himself in his hospital bed. “Im too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.”
In the photo, Renner appears to be lying in a hospital bed, wearing glasses and a tube up both his nostrils. He has a visible scrape on the left side of his face.
A representative for the actor told the Associated Press on Monday that Renner remains in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery and is in an intensive care unit.
Renner, who plays ace archer Clint Barton/Hawkeye in the superhero Avengers movies and Disney+ series “Hawkeye,” suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries in a snow plow accident in Reno, Nevada, on Sunday, Renner’s rep said Monday.
“Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve” and others, read the statement. “They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

A statement shared Sunday with multiple outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and Deadline, indicated that his family is with him while he receives care.
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Renner was injured in Reno and was flown to a hospital. He was the only person involved, and the sheriff’s office is investigating, according to the release.
According to Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve per the Reno Gazette Journal, Renner got out of a snow plow he has at his home on the side of a snow mountain to help a stranded car on New Year’s Day when he was run over by his own vehicle.
