Us Weekly confirmed on July 10 that the 57-year-old Oscar winner was involved in a motor accident. The following day, a video of the incident surfaced and showed Clooney being thrown over the top of his scooter after he was hit by a Mercedes.

An Olbia police officer told Us Weekly at the time that the driver, who was unharmed, “immediately recognized he was responsible.”

“He turned the car without respecting the road laws,” the officer explained at the time. “He was the first to call the emergency services and the police.”

Clooney suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Giovanni Paolo II hospital in an ambulance. His rep confirmed to Us in a statement that he was “treated and released from an Olbia hospital.”
