Clooney, George: Hurt in Accident in Sardinia

George Clooney, shooting Catch-22 series in Italy, was involved in an accident on the island of Sardinia that involved a trip to the hospital, according to local news outlets.

The star was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after falling off his scooter on the state road to Costa Corallina, in the province of Olbia, La Nuova reported.

Police told NBC’s Claudio Lavanga that the accident occurred around 8:15 a.m. local time when a driver of a car allegedly did not “respect the right of way,” cutting across the star’s path and hitting him.

The star fell and the driver of the car rendered assistance, calling an ambulance, Lavanga added.

The father of two was taken to the emergency room of John Paul II hospital after complaining of “a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm,” according to La Nuova. He also reportedly underwent an MRI.
