George Clooney's Motorcycle Crash & Car Accident Photos

Commander Mannoni also told reporters that the police are investigating the causes of and responsibility for the crash.

Clooney was in Sardinia shooting his Hulu limited series Catch-22. He was reportedly driving 60 miles per hour when the auto suddenly pulled in front of him.

Clooney got an MRI to check the extent of his knee injury and his wife, Amal Clooney, rushed to his side.

An official at Sassari town hall confirmed to the BBC that Clooney had been involved in a "minor accident" but had no serious injuries.

"George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital", a rep for the actor told People.

George Clooney was reportedly thrown 6 metres in the air when a vehicle smashed into his scooter at 60mph (about 96kph) on the Italian island of Sardinia earlier this week.

Production on George Clooney's "Catch-22" is continuing as planned following his frightening scooter accident in Italy.

Reports suggest he was treated at St John Paul II hospital before being released.

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

Pictures from the scene of the accident showed what appeared to be George's damaged motorbike next to the blue Mercedes.

Clooney has had a home on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como, for many years.

The 57-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital, Italian media reported. "The driver decided to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George". Clooney suffered a broken rib and scrapes, while Larson broke her foot.
