George Clooney Injured In Car Crash In Sardinia
George Clooney has reportedly been injured in a road accident in Sardinia.
It’s reported the actor’s scooter collided with a car, leaving the windscreen shattered.
According to Italian media reports, the actor, who’s in the area filming, was travelling along a state road in Costa Corallina when the accident happened, shortly after 8am local time.
Police told NBC the accident happened around 8.15am when a ‘driver of a car’ allegedly failed to ‘respect the right of way’, and cut Clooney up.
La Nuova Sardegna tweeted an image with the caption:
George Clooney at the hospital: with his bike he ended up against a car that was turning.
According to News.au.com, it’s believed Clooney was taken by ambulance to John Paul II hospital, and his injuries are ‘not serious’.
Clooney is believed to have had an MRI scan and has since been discharged from hospital.
It’s also being reported Clooney’s wife, Amal, rushed to his side while he waited for the results before leaving hospital together in a private car.
Clooney is currently in Italy filming Catch 22, a World War Two Channel 4 drama.
He’ll play US Air Force commander Scheisskopf in the six-part drama series, which is based on Joseph Heller’s classic novel.
Catch 22 is scheduled to air in 2019.
Clooney, his wife Amal and their two children are reportedly staying in a villa in San Teodoro, Sardinia, while filming continues.
Just last year Clooney hinted at retirement from acting when he spoke in an interview with The Sunday Times.
Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore.
Well, yeah, I shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl. But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in The Verdict, I’d jump.
But there aren’t that many like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f*cking dollars. I don’t need money.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for George!
