George Clooney hurt in motorcycle accident in Italys Sardinia

Italian media say actor George Clooney has been hospitalized after he was involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle in Sardinia.

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.

A picture from La Nuova suggests that Clooney hit a car while on the motorway. The photo showed the car’s windscreen smashed.

Clooney was travelling towards the set in Costa Corallina when a car suddenly turned and struck him, according to local daily La Nuova.

Clooney was reportedly taken to the John Paul II hospital emergency room.

La Nuova reported he was found to have a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and arm, but his condition was not serious.

Police said they have no information, and the hospital didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Clooney has a house on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como.

Clooney relocated his family to Sardinia, the second largest Island in the Mediterranean Sea, so he could film TV miniseries Catch 22, according to The Sun.

The US actor is directing, producing and starring in the six episode miniseries based on Joseph Heller’s famous novel.

Set in Italy during World War II, Catch-22, follows the story of the artful dodger Yossarian, a bombardier for the US Air Force, who is furious because many others he has never met are trying to kill him. The series is being produced for Hulu.

Clooney was pictured stepping off a private jet with wife Amal and twins, Alexander and Ella, near the end of last month.

Even earlier in June, Clooney was seen zipping around the island on a scooter with Amal, 40, hugging him tightly.
