George Clooney 'thrown 20 feet in the air' in motorcycle accident

U.S. actor George Clooney has been released from an Italian hospital after being involved in a motor accident Tuesday.

Surveillance video of the crash, apparently taken by a fixed security video, was obtained late Tuesday by the newspaper Corriere della Sera.

"He is recovering at his home and will be fine", a representative for Clooney previously told HuffPost. According to the authorities, Clooney's scooter collided with the vehicle.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after Tuesday's accident, in which Clooney's scooter and a blue Mercedes sedan collided along a curve in the road.

Clooney was travelling to the set of his TV miniseries Catch-22 in Costa Corallina when his bike is understood to have hit a auto that "suddenly turned", Italian newspaper La Nuova reported.

"The auto driver called the 112, the emergency number of Carabinieri, and they sent the Municipal Police, an ambulance and the Fire Dept".

The 57-year-old was thrown over the top of his scooter after being hit by a Mercedes while in Olbia on the island of Sardinia. George has been working on his new project Catch 22 (based on the novel by Joseph Heller), with the star directing, producing and starring in the six-episode miniseries.

He has been staying at a lush, gated rental villa in the high-end Puntaldia neighbourhood on Sardinia's northeastern coast, which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea.
