George Clooney was injured in a road accident in Italy today when his scooter collided with a auto.

Local reports say he was on his way to the set when a auto hit the bike he was riding.

He is understood to have received treatment at John Paul II hospital, but NBC News report that he has since been discharged.

In pictures from the crash, obtained by the MailOnline, the auto involved in the crash appears to have a smashed windscreen, suggesting George may even have hit it during the crash.


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

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.

George Clooney was reportedly involved in a motorbike accident Tuesday.

Their outing comes amid reports that the pair are renting a attractive two-storey villa from Ezio Maria Simonelli, an accountant and man close to former Italian president Silvio Berlusconi.


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

Clooney is now filming his new TV series "Catch 22" on the island, which also features Hugh Laurie and Austin Stowell ("Whiplash").

Hugh Laurie also stars as Major de Coverley for the series which has a release date of 2019.
