Actor George Clooney arrives at the American Film Institute's 46th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute to George Clooney

The daily said the 57-year-old had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a auto. The accident occurred at Costa Corallina, on a country road.

In pictures from the crash, obtained by the MailOnline, the auto involved in the crash appears to have a smashed windscreen, suggesting George may even have hit it during the crash.

"A auto did not respect the right of way and hit him", the tweet read.

The actor was reportedly taken to the emergency room of the John Paul II (Giovanni Paolo II) hospital, which is in Olbia, Sardinia. They also claim it is not believed his condition is serious.

He was joined by wife Amal Clooney and it has been reported that the pair left the hospital together in a private auto.

Clooney relocated his family to Sardinia, the second largest Island in the Mediterranean Sea, so he could film TV miniseries Catch 22, according to The Sun.

Based on Joseph Heller's classic novel, it will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on Channel 4.

Immediately after the crash, Clooney was transported to a nearby hospital.

George and Amal were seen arrive in the island on a private jet at the end of June with their twins Alexander and Ella.

It was announced in April that the multi-talented star was reducing his role in the Hulu production so he could concentrate on his directing and producing credits.

Italian media reports Clooney has already been released from the hospital.
