Los Angeles:

Actor Jeremy Renner — perhaps best known as Hawkeye in the Marvel Universe movies — said Saturday he broke more than 30 bones when he was run over by his own snowplow at his Nevada home on New Year’s Day.

The ‘Avengers’ star spent more than two weeks in the hospital after the giant 14,000-pound (six-ton) vehicle rolled onto him as he was clearing a driveway.

“These 30+ broken bones will heal, grow stronger, just as the love and bond with family and friends deepens,” the 52-year-old two-time Oscar nominee wrote on Instagram, thanking fans for their messages of support.

He posted a photo of himself lying on a hospital bed, hands clenched on chest, as a man holds his leg up, bent at the knee.

“Morning workouts, New Year’s resolutions all changed this particular New Year,” Renner wrote. “Briving from a tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused on reuniting useful love.”

Renner sustained the injuries when he attempted to climb into the snowplow to stop it. He was evacuated by helicopter and later posted a selfie from his hospital bed, with heavy bruises on his face.

Officials said shortly after the accident that there was no indication that alcohol or drugs were involved.

The PistenBully, or Snow Cat, piloted by Renner is a large specialized snow plow vehicle with giant, raised tracks on either side of an enclosed cab.
