George Clooney was briefly hospitalized in Italy Tuesday after his scooter was hit by a car in Italy, police told NBC and CNN.
The 57-year-old actor was riding a scooter in Olbia on the island of Sardinia when a Mercedes cut across his path and hit him, throwing him over the top of his scooter. He was taken to a hospital in Olbia, but his injuries were not serious and he was discharged, health officials told NBC and CNN.
“George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital,” his representative Stan Rosenfield told USA TODAY. “He is recovering at home and will be fine.”
Clooney is in Italy filming a “Catch-22” miniseries that will run on Hulu, based on Joseph Heller’s 1961 novel that was also made into a 1970 film.
Clooney will portray Col. Cathcart (played by Martin Balsam in the film), marking Clooney’s first TV role since he left NBC’s ER in 1999. He will also direct the series with production partner Grant Heslov.
USA TODAY has contacted Clooney’s representatives for comment.
