George Clooney Injured in Motorcycle Crash in Italy

Julia Gonzales | 10 July, 2018, 18:51

Actor George Clooney was injured on Tuesday when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle in Sardinia, Italian news media reported.

A photo from the scene shows the car's smashed windshield.

The 57-year-old was travelling to the set of his new TV show Catch 22 in Costa Corallina when a auto turned and struck him.

According to the site, George was said to be hit by a auto which suddenly changed direction at a spot close to a hotel.

Clooney was taken by ambulance to the John Paul II hospital emergency room, but his injuries were not serious.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people are visible.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for George for comment.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.

George Clooney has been rushed to hospital after a motorbike crash.

Their outing comes amid reports that the pair are renting a lovely two-storey villa from Ezio Maria Simonelli, an accountant and man close to former Italian president Silvio Berlusconi.

The actor is now on the island filming a new TV series "Catch-22", based on the 1961 book of the same name written by Joseph Heller.

They met when she attended one of his parties at his Lake Como mansion, and Wednesday in Venice a year later.

The move comes after it was announced in April that the actor was going to be reducing his role in the production so that he could concentrate on directing and producing.

His castmates include Hugh Laurie, Austin Stowell ('Whiplash') and Kyle Martin Chandler ('Friday Night Lights').

The Hulu mini-series is based on Joseph Heller's novel about a US Air Force bombardier who aims to fly sufficient missions to go back home and leave World War II behind.
