Clooney 'Recovering'

Actor hit by car while riding a motor scooter


George Clooney's latest hit is one he'd rather forget. The 57-year-old actor was struck by a car today while riding a motor scooter on the Italian island of Sardinia.

Clooney—who "slammed" into the car's windshield, according to a police officer who arrived at the scene of the accident—was taken to a local hospital, where he was reportedly treated for "a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm."

He was then released, accompanied by his wife, Amal. "He is recovering at his home and will be fine," said a spokesman.

The accident occurred while Clooney was traveling to the set of the Hulu series he's shooting in Sardinia.

The driver of the Mercedes-Benz sedan that hit the two-time Academy Award winner called for help and remained on the scene until police and an ambulance arrived.
