George Clooney injured in scooter accident in Italy

Local daily La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a vehicle.

According to local Italian media reports, the actor, who is in Sardinia to film a miniseries was travelling along a state road in Costa Corallina when the accident occurred.

George Clooney "smashed in to a windscreen" when his scooter collided with a vehicle in Sardinia.

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

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

A family member told CNN Monday that they hadn't been told which boys had been pulled out, and who is still trapped in the cave. The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to unsafe levels.

Clooney is now filming TV drama Catch-22 on the Italian island.

Clooney, 57, had just left his hotel on a motor scooter when he crashed into a small truck, Italy's Chi magazine said on its website. Clooney fell off the scooter and slammed into the windshield of the Mercedes.

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.

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