George Clooney in motorbike accident in Sardinia

Hollywood star George Clooney's motorbike was recently involved in an accident with a Mercedes car in Italy. The accident resulted in the actor, 57, to suffer injuries that required hospital treatment.

The US star was riding his scooter from his house in Puntaldia, Sardinia to the set of his new series, Catch 22, which is in Capo Ceraso, Olbia, when the accident occurred at 7am in the morning.

George was at a junction in in the tourist village of Costa Corallina when he got hit by the car as it turned left to enter the village. An eyewitness said that Clooney hit the windscreen with his head and fell to the ground. He was treated quickly on the road before being taken to hospital, with firefighters in attendance at the scene as a safety precaution.

Fortunately the Oceans 11 star was wearing a helmet and was not driving very fast, but the windscreen of the car he hit was badly smashed. A spokesperson for the star said: 'George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital. He is recovering at home and will be fine.'

George was then taken to nearby John Paul II hospital, where the doctors performed a CT scan.He had no fractures, but he did have trauma to the pelvis, hip and knee which should take around a month to heal. The star's wife Amal, 40, immediately rushed to his side and after two hours, she and George left together via a side exit with security and the local police escort.

Amal and George, along with their one-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander, are living in Sardinia for the summer, whilst he films his new TV show. The couple had previously been enjoying their European trip alongside George's parents Nina and Nick Clooney, as well as Amal's mother Baria Alamuddin.They are reportedly renting a beautiful two-storey villa from Ezio Maria Simonelli, an accountant and man close to former Italian president Silvio Berlusconi. The stunning villa features two swimming pools, a tennis court and an incredibly colourful landscape.
