George Clooney was reportedly involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle in Italy.

Hollywood star George Clooney was taken to hospital after suffering minor injuries in a collision involving his motorbike and a vehicle, the BBC reports. According to the authorities, Clooney's scooter collided with the vehicle.

Clooney was seen leaving the hospital with his wife Amal Clooney in a private vehicle.

"He is recovering at home and will be fine", a representative for Clooney told People.

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.

The daily says the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a auto. The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series Catch-22.

Clooney is thrown over the front of his bike and up in the air before landing on the asphalt, where the auto driver and other witnesses come to help.

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

Clooney, the husband of leading human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has a home on the Italian mainland at Lake Como.
