George Clooney reportedly sustains minor injuries in scooter crash in Italy

Hollywood star George Clooney has been injured in a collision involving his scooter and a auto.

George Clooney was taken to the hospital after crashing his motorcycle into a auto in Sardinia this week.

A local news agency and newspaper suggest Clooney has a suspected hip injury, but is not seriously injured.

"George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital", the rep told "Good Morning America" in a statement Tuesday.

La Nuova noted that the star complained of slight pain in his pelvis and bruises to a leg and an arm.

Clooney is filming his upcoming TV show on the island, Catch-22, which he is directing and producing.

Clooney and his wife, Amal, left the hospital together in a private auto, La Nuova added.

Police said they had no information, and the hospital did not respond to requests for comment.

Clooney is staying on the Italian island while he films a new TV series, "Catch 22", based on the classic 1961 novel by Joseph Heller. It's not clear whether he'll consider traveling on four wheels from now on, however, having previously suffered a broken rib in a motorbike accident in NY in 2007.
