Video of George Clooney’s scooter crash in Italy which sent him to the hospital has been released online.
The footage, which was taken from a nearby CCTV camera, shows George Clooney being thrown several feet into the air when his scooter collided with an oncoming car.
Following the accident, Clooney was taken to the hospital in Olbia where he was released shortly after. Officials said that his injuries were not believed to be serious.
Giovanni Mannoni, a police commander in Olbia, said the actor did not suffer any serious injuries or break any bones.
George Clooney has been released from an Italian hospital after being involved in a motor accident Tuesday. The 57-year-old actor was thrown over the top of his scooter after being hit by a Mercedes in Olbia on the island of Sardinia.
Clooney told a friend it’s “good to be alive” after the road accident. He told his friend, CNN contributor John Avlon, that he was going 65 mph when the other driver cut in front of him, hitting him head-on.
The film star smashed the windshield with his head and flew 30 feet from the car, Avlon said Clooney relayed to him.
The driver of the Mercedes hit Clooney after failing to stop at a turn, according to Alberto Cicognani, a Carabinieri officer.
Cicognani told CNN he had spoken with Clooney, who said he was “fine” and would resume filming of a miniseries based on “Catch-22,” the Joseph Heller book, in a couple of days.
“George Clooney was treated and released from an Olbia hospital. He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” a representative told Fox News.
