The Italian island of Sardinia might be the kind of place one goes to get away from the hustle and bustle of the world, but that doesn’t mean its roads are without incident.
Yesterday’s headline grabber was the accident involving George Clooney, who collided with a car at around 8:15AM.
Relax, fans of silver foxes around the world, his face is just fine.
Details via the BBC:
The accident happened in Sardinia where the US actor is filming his latest TV series, Catch-22. A representative for the actor, 57, said he was treated and released from a hospital in the Sardinian city of Olbia.
“He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” the spokesperson continued.
“At 8.15am George Clooney was riding his scooter on the State Road 125 towards Olbia from Puntaldia,” said a spokesman for the Italian Carabinieri in a statement.
“A car (a Mercedes E SW) did not respect the right of way and hit him. George Clooney fell and slammed the windshield of the Mercedes.
“The car driver called the 112, the emergency number of Carabinieri, and they sent the Municipal Police, an ambulance and the Fire Dept.
“[The] MRI was negative, and he is not seriously injured. George Clooney has already been discharged and he stays well.”
Other reports suggest he suffered “a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm”, but again, the face is fine.
Footage of the accident has now emerged, so pay attention from the 15-second mark:
