His wife Amal, a human rights lawyer, rushed to Clooney's side in hospital, according to local newspaper La Nuova Sardegna, who reported he was later discharged and advised to follow a course of physiotherapy.
The 57-year-old had been heading to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a auto, according to local daily La Nuova Sardegna.
Director George Clooney is interviewed at the premiere for "Suburbicon" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., October 22, 2017. A representative said the actor hadn't been seriously injured and that he is now recovering at home after being discharged from hospital. La Nuova reported that Clooney and his wife left the hospital together in a private auto. According to reports, Clooney was thrown over the top of his scooter after the hit. If George Clooney truly did fly 20 feet into the air into a glass windshield that shattered his helmet, then the fact that he is able to be released from the hospital so quickly is truly great fortune.
He was said to be travelling 60mph at the time when the vehicle reportedly changed direction suddenly and collided with the bike.
George was riding at Costa Corallina on his way to a film set and was traveling along a motorway when the crash happened.
Italian media report the accident happened in Sardinia where the U.S. actor is filming his latest TV series, Catch-22. The reported "catch" in Catch-22 is, according to The Telegraph, a USAAF rule that states a crew member "is considered unstable if he keeps on flying unsafe combat missions, but if he asks to be relieved of his duties, the act of making the request proves that he is sane and therefore must stick with the job". "The driver decided to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George".
