The 57-year-old actor was riding his scooter on the Italian island of Sardinia on Tuesday (July 10) when another vehicle cut him off.

He was treated and released, hospital officials said. Clooney left the hospital about two hours after the incident.

The 57-year-old had been heading to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a auto, according to local daily La Nuova Sardegna. The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series Catch 22.

Clooney was taken to the Giovanni Paulo II hospital for treatment and is said to have suffered slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one knee and an arm.

George Clooney "smashed in to a windscreen" when his scooter collided with a auto in Sardinia.

Clooney was traveling on a state road in Costa Corallina, a province of Olbia, when the crash occurred, Italy's TGCOM24 reported.

News reporter Claudio Lavanga tweeted, citing police, that the accident happened around 8 a.m. local time.

The couple have also been joined by George's parents, Nina and Nick Clooney, and Amal's mother Baria Alamuddin.

CNN reported on Tuesday morning that the Hollywood superstar was driving his bike on the Italian island when he ran head-on into a truck that turned into him.
