George Clooney ended up in the emergency room after slamming into a Mercedes-Benz E-Class in Sardinia, this morning. The actor, driving a motorcycle, did not notice that the car was turning left.
Clooney front-ended the vehicle and was sent into the windshield of the Mercedes-Benz sedan. The blow was so strong that the windshield of the car was smashed into pieces. The accident took place in Costa Carolina of the Italian island Sardinia.
The Mercedes driver walked away unharmed, but the 57-year old actor was soon in the care of the paramedics, who found him on the asphalt. He was conscious, but revealed bruises on arms and legs. Further medical investigation showed that he had also suffered a pelvis trauma. He received treatment and was soon discharged from the hospital. He is currently recovering at the villa he is renting for the summer in Sardinia. His wife Amal and his 1-year old twins, Ella and Alexander, are also there.
This morning, George Clooney was driving to the movie set. He is working on his next installment, but will need a break to recover. For the American star, it is the second motorbike accident, following the one in New York, in 2007.
