Clooney shows character after being caught up in accidentCentral Station | 12 Jul 2018
Actor George Clooney was taken to hospital in Sardinia and released after his motor scooter and a car crashed on a state road on the Italian island.
"He is recovering at his home and will be fine," Clooney spokesman Stan Rosenfield said. Clooney's scooter and a blue Mercedes sedan collided along a curve in the road.
Daily newspaper La Nuova Sardegna said Clooney, 57, was heading to a film set when the accident happened.
Clooney was reportedly in Sardinia filming a television mini-series adapted from Joseph Heller's World War II novel Catch-22.
He was staying in a lush, gated rental villa in the high-end Puntaldia neighborhood on Sardinia's northeastern coast, which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. Staff at the home declined to comment.
Clooney is a frequent visitor to Italy. He has a home on Lake Como and was married in Venice in 2014 to the British human rights attorney, Amal Clooney.
