All things considered, it's rather fortunate that George Clooney is recovering well.

The US actor is in Sardinia to film a miniseries based on Joseph Heller's book "Catch 22". In Catch-22, Clooney plays an Air Force commander named Scheisskopf.

The six-part drama is set to air in 2019 and also stars Hugh Laurie and Oscar-nominated Italian actor Giancarlo Giannini.

The John Paul II hospital confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after a few hours.

An NBC News video segment said Clooney fell onto the hood of the vehicle. Amal went to the hospital to see him, and the two left together.

Ambulance personnel tend to a man lying on the ground, later identified as actor George Clooney, after being involved in a scooter accident in the near Olbia, on the Sardinia island, Italy, Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

According to a report from TMZ, Clooney became a human projectile and flew 20 feet in the air and over the vehicle he hit.


The A-list couple are believed to have brought their parents to the Italian island to help care for the children while Clooney works. He has already been released from the hospital at this time.

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.

The most recent reports suggest Clooney sustained a minor knee injury in the incident.

This is not Clooney's first time in a motorcycle crash.

'MRI was negative, and he is not seriously injured.

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. Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman weren't immediately returned. Clooney broke a rib. George was riding to the right. "The driver chose to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George".
