George Clooney reportedly hurt in motorcycle crash in Italy

The Hollywood actor was taken to hospital after being involved in a traffic accident while driving his scooter on the island of Sardinia Italy

The 57-year-old actor, who is now filming a TV series on the Italian island, was understood to be driving to set when the incident occurred.

Italian paper La Nuova reported that he was rushed to the emergency room at John Paul II Hospital, but he is not believed to be seriously hurt.

A picture from La Nuova shows a smashed windscreen, which suggests George hit it during the crash, but despite this, his condition is not thought to be serious.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people are visible.

HuffPost UK has contacted George's representatives for comment.

The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series "Catch 22".

The stunning abode features two swimming pools, a tennis court and an incredibly colourful landscape.

Clooney has a home with his wife, human rights lawyer Amal, on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como.
