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.

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.

In pictures from the crash, obtained by the MailOnline, the vehicle involved in the crash appears to have a smashed windscreen, suggesting George may even have hit it during the crash.

"A vehicle did not respect the right of way and hit him", the tweet read.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people are visible.

George reportedly felt "a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm", and was given an MRI at the nearby John Paul II hospital, according to local outlet, La Nuova.


Clooney is now filming TV drama Catch-22 on the Italian island.

Clooney has now been discharged, and local media that had gathered at the hospital said he is believed to have left through a side exit.

Police had no immediate information and calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman weren't immediately returned.

They all came together at the up-market Il Marino di Puntaldia restaurants after George had finished filming.

It was announced in April that the multi-talented star was reducing his role in the Hulu production so he could concentrate on his directing and producing credits.

Clooney has a home on Lake Como on the Italian mainland.
