Clooney was driving a motor scooter to work on Tuesday morning when he collided with a Mercedes making a sudden left turn.

Sardinian newspaper La Nuova posted a picture from the scene showing Clooney's scooter, a Mercedes auto and a fire extinguisher with the caption: "George Clooney in hospital: With his bike he ended up hitting a vehicle that was turning".

Clooney was transported to the John Paul II Hospital emergency room, but his injuries were not serious, La Stampa reported.
