Italian authorities confirm to ET that the 57-year-old actor was involved in a traffic collision while riding his scooter near Olbia, Italy, on Tuesday morning.

Reuters George Clooney managed to walk away from a scary scooter crash on the island of Sardinia.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after Tuesday's accident, in which Clooney's scooter and a blue Mercedes sedan collided along a curve in the road.

Clooney underwent an MRI but was quickly discharged as he experienced no serious inuries.

Clooney was driving 65 miles per hour when the auto entered his lane, he reportedly told John Avlon, his friend and a contributor for CNN.




"He is recovering at his home and will be fine", a representative for Clooney previously told HuffPost. Local media that had gathered at the hospital said Clooney is believed to have left through a side exit. He fell. The auto driver called an ambulance.

Clooney, 57, was riding the bike at Costa Corallina on the island of Sardinia when he was involved in a collision with a vehicle, according to Italy's TGR Rai Sardegna.

Clooney reportedly was in Sardinia filming a television miniseries adapted from Joseph Heller's Second World War novel Catch-22.

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