George Clooney has been injured in a road accident after his motorbike was in collision with a auto in Sardinia, according to reports.

The 57-year-old Academy Award victor was traveling on a state road in Costa Corallina, a province of Olbia, when the crash occurred, TGCOM24 reported. Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman weren't immediately returned.

An ambulance later took Clooney to the nearest hospital, according to Cicognani.

The actor is now on the island filming a new TV series "Catch-22", based on the 1961 book of the same name written by Joseph Heller.

According to a Sassari town hall official, the Ocean's 11 actor had no serious injuries, but had sustained a minor knee injury and has since been discharged from hospital.

George Clooney "smashed in to a windscreen" when his scooter collided with a auto in Sardinia.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after Tuesday's accident. More information is to follow.

It's not just the Clooneys spending the summer in Italy, George's parents and Amal's mum were also seen arriving on separate flights.

Sardinia is a large Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea and is over 500 miles from Clooney's villa in Lake Como.
