Local police are investigating, the news agency Ansa said. The car's driver assisted George after the crash and reportedly called an ambulance, according to NBC. Clooney's wife, human rights attorney Amal Clooney, rushed to be at his side. "He is recovering at his home and will be fine", spokesman Stan Rosenfield told The Associated Press in an email.

Police told NBC News that the accident happened around 8:15 a.m. local time when a auto did not obey the right of way and collided with Clooney at an intersection. Fortunately, the injuries are not considered serious and Clooney has already been discharged from the hospital.

The "Ocean's 11" actor is now filming Hulu's "Catch-22" series on the island.

George Clooney's scooter was hit by a vehicle while riding around Sardinia, an Italian island.

He then is seen tumbling onto the ground after he appeared to hit the windscreen of the vehicle.

Clooney is in Italy (aside from the fact that he famously has a home in Lake Como) to shoot a Hulu series in Sardinia.

Back in 2007, he was driving a rented Harley-Davidson with then-girlfriend Sarah Larson when they were sideswiped on a narrow road in New Jersey.
