George Clooney was taken by ambulance to a hospital after being involved in a traffic collision on the Italian island of Sardinia. TMZ reports that Clooney was thrown from a motor scooter and “literally became a human projectile after impact.”
“Sources with direct knowledge of the crash tell TMZ … Clooney was doing 60 MPH when a car suddenly pulled in front of him,” the story reports. “Clooney was thrown from his bike and his helmet struck the car’s windshield, causing it to shatter. The force of the impact actually broke his helmet.”
The report cites sources saying Clooney was thrown 20 feet in the air, and was propelled over the car he hit.
Clooney is said to be recovering at home after being treated at a nearby hospital. His injuries were reportedly not life-threatening.
