Bulgaria: George Clooney in Road Accident in Sardinia, Italy

HOLLYWOOD actor George Clooney has reportedly been injured in a car accident where his scooter collided with a pick-up truck.

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.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people from the accident were involved.

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

It’s understood the superstar was taken to the emergency room at John Paul II hospital.

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.

Clooney has now been discharged, and local media that had gathered at the hospital said he is believed to have left through a side exit.

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.

Calls and emails to Clooney’s spokesman in regards to the accident weren’t immediately returned, according to Associated Press.
