Italian newspaper La Nuova Sardegna tweeted a photo of the purported accident site.

George Clooney has been injured in a road accident after his motorbike was in collision with a vehicle in Sardinia, according to reports.

The actor was reportedly taken to the emergency room of the John Paul II (Giovanni Paolo II) hospital, which is in Olbia, Sardinia.

HOLLYWOOD actor George Clooney has reportedly been injured in a auto accident where his scooter collided with a pick-up truck.

La Nuova reported he was found to have a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and arm, but his condition was not serious.

Clooney, 57, had just left his hotel on a motor scooter when he crashed into a small truck, Italy's Chi magazine said on its website.

Narongsak said experts told him the new rain could shrink the unflooded space where the boys are sheltering to 108 square feet. Monday's rescue mission, which saw four boys extracted before dusk and whisked to Chiang Rai hospital, took around nine hours.

Clooney is now filming TV drama Catch-22 on the Italian island.

The 57-year-old actor, who is now filming a TV series on the Italian island, was understood to be driving to set when the incident occurred.

It was announced in April that the multi-talented star was reducing his role in the Hulu production so he could concentrate on his directing and producing credits.

George and Amal were seen arrive in the island on a private jet at the end of June with their twins Alexander and Ella.
