The 57-year-old was hit by a vehicle while riding his scooter on the island of Sardinia, officials confirmed to NBC News. The accident occurred at Costa Corallina, on a country road.

A picture from La Nuova suggests that Clooney hit a vehicle while on the motorway.

The newspaper tweeted a photo apparently from the scene, showing a lightly smashed up motorbike and auto, with a caption suggesting the vehicle had been turning and Clooney had made contact with its windscreen.

Local daily La Nuova Sardegna said Clooney's injuries were not serious, but he was taken to the John Paul II hospital emergency room.

Clooney is now on the island filming a new TV series "Catch-22", based off the book of the same name written by Joseph Heller.

Saman Kunan, an ex-SEAL, died Friday from a lack of oxygen as he attempted to place air tanks inside the cave complex. On the weekend Mr Musk said he had been building a "tiny, kid-size submarine" with "feedback from Thailand".

"Catch 22" is an adaptation of Joseph Heller's classic novel and George is directing and starring in the series. Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman weren't immediately returned.

Clooney was pictured stepping off a private jet with wife Amal and twins, Alexander and Ella, near the end of last month.

Earlier that month George was seen driving around the island on a scooter with Amal clinging on tightly behind him. It's unclear when George will return to filming.

Italian media reports Clooney has already been released from the hospital.
