George Clooney "fine" after motorbike crash in Italy

George Clooney

He is understood to have received treatment at John Paul II hospital, but NBC News report that he has since been discharged. La Nuova also reports that George's wife, Amal Clooney, rushed to be by his side when she heard news of his hospitalization.

A photo from the Italian website La Nuova showed the car's windshield cracked.

The 57-year-old was travelling to the set of his new TV show Catch 22 in Costa Corallina when a auto turned and struck him.

According to the site, George was said to be hit by a vehicle which suddenly changed direction at a spot close to a hotel. "Over a period of time, it became clear we were more than just friends".




Clooney was on the island shooting his new series Catch-22. The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series Catch 22.

The move comes after it was announced in April that the actor was going to be reducing his role in the production so that he could concentrate on directing and producing.

His castmates include Hugh Laurie, Austin Stowell ('Whiplash') and Kyle Martin Chandler ('Friday Night Lights').

Clooney is now filming his new TV series "Catch 22" on the island, which also features Hugh Laurie and Austin Stowell ("Whiplash").
