George Clooney has been injured after a motorcyle he was riding collided with a pickup truck in Sardinia, Italian media reports.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia said Clooney was released Tuesday.

Clooney was driving his scooter at 8 a.m. local time Tuesday when he collided with a auto, which reportedly sent him crashing into its windshield and flying 20 feet in the air.

He was treated and released, hospital officials said. Here is what Clooney's representative had to say on the matter.

Immediately after the crash, Clooney was transported to a nearby hospital. In fact, the actor said in an interview a year ago that he fell in love with his wife Amal Clooney after meeting her in the area in 2013.

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.

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

The north-east coast of Sardinia is popular with the rich and famous, although Clooney is on location on the island to film a new mini-series, Catch 22.

George and Amal Clooney just donated $100,000 to help migrant children separated from their parents. According to China Daily, in 2007, Clooney and an ex-girlfriend (Sarah Larson) were injured when their motorcycle collided with a vehicle in Weehawken, New Jersey.
