Jeremy Renner has paid a visit to the hospital that saved his life following a near-fatal snow plow accident last New Year.

The Marvel star, 52, was rushed to hospital on New Year's Day after being run over by his own snow plow, leaving him close to death.

Renner, who is best known for playing Hawkeye, had attempted to stop the seven-ton Pistenbully snow plow from hitting his nephew, while the pair cleared the roads around his home in Nevada, when he ended up trapped beneath it.

As reported by CNN, the sheriff's office stated: "When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully (snowplow) to avoid injury to [his nephew], he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and run over. The Pistenbully rolled over him and continued down the road."

Renner was rushed to hospital in a "critical but stable" condition following the accident on New Year's Day, and later told fans that he had broken more than 30 bones in his body, had a collapsed lung and had his liver punctured by a broken rib.

Thankfully, the actor has since made a remarkable recovery after undergoing surgeries and physical therapy, and returned to the hospital where he was treated one year on.

He shared a photo of himself in an emergency services vehicle with his RennerVation Foundation branding on it as well as Christmas lights and tinsel.

The initiative was set up by the actor and their mission statement reads: "To provide children, from all walks of life, the opportunity to manifest whatever gives them purpose and joy."

He shared a photo of him arriving at the hospital in the truck, telling his followers: "Rollin through Reno, NV with joy, blessings, and [pizza]!!!!

"Stopped by to see kids/superheroes , first responders , and doctors, nurses and staff at Renown hospital. Paying my respects and celebrating love, life and the blessings it brings to us all.

"Thank you and this community for keeping me here.. I’m forever in your debt with gratitude #loveandtitanium."

Renner is also set to speak about his accident and healing journey in the form of a new album called Love and Titanium and has shared snippets of the project with fans.

He gave fans a first listen to one of the tracks on Instagram along with a music video starring his 10-year-old daughter Ava Berlin Renner ahead of its release.

Renner also shared an update on his recovery in November, 10 months after he was injured, showing him hopping anf running down his steep driveway and looking to be back in full health.

He wrote alongside it: "Today marks the day on 10 months of recovery …. First attempt at any of this activity (especially at steep grade) and was brought to tears of joy, hopefulness, and gratitude for all your support along with my family and friends…. I keep pushing for many reasons, but you are my fuel."

Renner also told CNN that he felt "very blessed and very lucky to be upright and walk around and to live life" after the horror accident, which could have easily taken his life.

He revealed that it made his reevaluate his priorities and make some changes in his life, adding: "My life is really lean, if that makes sense. There's no fat in my life anymore. I don't have time for that."

He added: "When you're tested physically, emotionally, spiritually, in every way, and then to come through it, that's something hard to explain."
