A Sardinian newspaper, Nuova Sardegna, posted an image of the incident on Twitter with a story that suggested Clooney was heading to the set of his latest project. No irregularities were found in a scan, and Clooney left the hospital at 10 a.m. "He is recovering at his home and will be fine", a publicist for the actor told Yahoo Entertainment. A health official confirmed that he was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries that were "not serious".

The accident took place in Sardinia, Italy, where the actor is now filming his upcoming TV show, Catch-22.

"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. His second shock of the day came when Clooney's bodyguard informed him who he had hit.

Olbia police commander Giovanni Mannoni told CNN that the actor will be monitored by hospital staff as an outpatient for the next few weeks.

As fans may already be aware, George Clooney, whose property is in Lake Como, has been staying on the Italian island while shooting his upcoming series titled Catch 22.
