George Clooney car accident injured Sardinia Italy later news update Amal

"He is recovering at his home and will be fine", Clooney spokesman Stan Rosenfield told The Associated Press.

Reuters George Clooney managed to walk away from a scary scooter crash on the island of Sardinia. Local daily La Nuova Sardegna says Clooney's injuries aren't serious, but that he was taken to the John Paul II hospital emergency room.

Local media representatives who gathered at the hospital said the Oscar-winning actor-director left in a van through a side exit.

According to Carabinieri officer Alberto Cicognani, the driver of the Mercedes hit Clooney after failing to stop at a turn.

Clooney, 57, was riding the bike at Costa Corallina on the island of Sardinia when he was involved in a collision with a auto, according to Italy's TGR Rai Sardegna.

Andersson's men are aiming to reach the last four for the first time since 1994 when they finished third in the United States. Streetwise Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro being suspended for a World Cup quarter-final should be a cause of mild panic.

A picture from the scene of the crash shows slight damage to the actor's bike, the car's windscreen smashed, and a fire extinguisher in the road.

The 57-year-old was thrown over the top of his scooter after being hit by a Mercedes while in Olbia on the island of Sardinia.

Clooney is a frequent visitor to Italy.

Clooney, the husband of leading human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has a home on the Italian mainland at Lake Como.

The actor is in Sardinia filming Catch 22, a TV adaptation of Joseph Heller's book of the same name.
