George Clooney was taken to hospital after suffering minor injuries in a collision involving his motorbike and a car. The accident happened in Sardinia where the US actor is filming his latest TV series, Catch-22.
A representative for the 57 year-old actor said he was treated and released from a hospital in the Sardinian city of Olbia.
“He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” the spokesperson continued. “At 8.15am George Clooney was riding his scooter on the State Road 125 towards Olbia from Puntaldia,” said a spokesman for the Italian Carabinieri in a statement. “A car (a Mercedes E SW) did not respect the right of way and hit him. George Clooney fell and slammed the windshield of the Mercedes.
“The car driver called the 112, the emergency number of Carabinieri, and they sent the Municipal Police, an ambulance and the Fire Dept.
“The MRI was negative, and he is not seriously injured. George Clooney has already been discharged and he stays well.”
The actor plays US Air Force commander Scheisskopf in the World War Two Channel 4 drama, based on Joseph Heller’s classic novel. The six-part drama is set to air in 2019.
Clooney is an Oscar-winning actor, known for roles in films such as Ocean’s 11, Up in the Air, Michael Clayton and O Brother, Where Art Thou?
