GETTYGeorge Clooney has reportedly been involved in a car accident in Sardinia

Oscar-winning actor George Clooney was hospitalized with minor injuries after being involved in an accident while riding a motorized scooter in Sardinia, Italy, on Tuesday morning (July 10), according to local media.

He was taken to hospital with a possible injury and later discharged from the emergency room with a slight contusion on his knee, state news agency Ansa said. According to Clooney, he was going about 65 miles per hour, nothing ridiculous, when a vehicle cut him off, hitting him head-on.

An NBC News video segment said Clooney fell onto the hood of the auto.

George Clooney was hospitalized and released shortly after following an accident in Italy, where he's been filming his new TV series Catch 22.

The crash reportedly went down just after 8:00 a.m. - local time - when a auto cut across the path George was taking on the road. His helmet, which broke during the crash, is said to have smashed the Mercedes' windshield. Responding Carabinieri officer Lt. Col. Alberto Cicognani told the Post that Clooney was thrown over the scooter's handlebars by the impact but told officers at the scene that he was "fine". Clooney was on the island shooting his new series Catch-22.

Lawyer and human rights activist (also Clooney's wife) Amal showed up at the hospital and took her scuffed-up husband home, where he's now safe and sound recovering with his baby twins nearby. He and wife Amal covertly left the hospital through a side exit and were ferried into a private auto.

George and Amal Clooney just donated $100,000 to help migrant children separated from their parents.
