George Clooney thrown 20 feet: horrific video of recent crash emerged
The 57-year-old actor and producer, George Clooney, was involved in a dreadful accident on the island of Sardinia earlier today. He was rushed to the hospital.
As reported by TMZ, he was driving his scooter when a vehicle changed lanes and pulled in front of him. Clooney was struck and thrown almost 20 feet from his bike.
He collided head-first with the pavement, which caused his helmet to shatter. The Ocean's 8 star was then taken to a hospital in Olbia but released shortly thereafter.
Thankfully he didn't sustain any severe injuries and is recuperating at home. Read more on our Twitter, @amomama_usa.
According to Fox News, surveillance footage has since been released to the public after an Italian restaurant reported on the incident.
His representative said that Clooney 'will be fine,' and would be able to continue filming his latest series, Catch 22.
Page Six has since learned that the driver of the vehicle, a Mercedez, was 65-year-old Antonello Viglino who claims to have been blinded by the sun.
Several eyewitnesses saw the crash, and a driver of a truck told reporters that Clooney appeared to be in pain when 'his escorts' removed his helmet.
His crew tried to control the growing crowd, yelling that no cell phones are allowed, the owner of nearby coffee shop recalled, adding that "there was great confusion."
His wife rushed to see him at the hospital, where he was treated for injuries to his knee, hip, and pelvis, before leaving by a side entrance to avoid the crowd of reporters gathered outside.
Besides Catch 22 which will air in 2019, fans of Clooney can also look forward to his other projects. He will produce the series On Becoming A God In Central Florida.
The TV series will be released in 2019, and it was announced that Clooney would also produce Red Platoon, a film following an American Sergeant who leads a squad of soldiers in Afghanistan.
