11 July 2018

The accident took place near the beach resort of Costa Corallina, local Tgr Rai Sardegna channel wrote on Twitter.

Video of the moment George Clooney was propelled into the air as he crashed into a Mercedes in Sardinia yesterday has been released.

Clooney, 57, had just left his hotel on a motor scooter when he crashed into a small truck, Italy's Chi magazine said on its website. "He is recovering at home and will be fine", a source told the Daily Mail.

Police told NBC News that the accident happened around 8:15 a.m. local time when a vehicle did not obey the right of way and collided with Clooney at an intersection.

The hospital confirmed to NBC News that Clooney has already been discharged.

Clooney is filming the "Catch-22" Hulu series (based on the Joseph Heller novel) on the Italian island ― and he was apparently on his way to the set.

The actor was taken via ambulance to a local hospital and released later the same day.

George Clooney's scooter was hit by a auto while riding around Sardinia, an Italian island.

Wife Amal, 40, came to collect him and the couple left in a chauffeur-driven auto.

George flew out to the Italian island with Amal, 40, and their one-year-old twins Ella and Alexander after attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May. Cicognani added that Clooney was "not seriously injured".

Pictures from George Clooney's motorcycle crash have emerged, showing the dramatic scene in Sardinia. Clooney suffered a broken rib and scrapes, while Larson broke her foot. "The driver decided to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George".
