An official at Sassari town hall confirmed to the BBC that Clooney had been involved in a "minor accident" but had no serious injuries.

The actor was taken to hospital after he was hit by a auto on the Italian island but is expected to make a full recovery. It shows a blue Mercedes veering into oncoming traffic apparently to turn into a residential compound near Olbia.

"He is recovering at home and will be fine", a representative for Clooney told People. According to the authorities, Clooney's scooter collided with the auto.

Clooney was driving 65 miles per hour when the auto entered his lane, he reportedly told John Avlon, his friend and a contributor for CNN.

Local daily La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a vehicle.

Virtually from kickoff, Sweden sent long passes forward to tall striker Ola Toivonen and looked for a flick-on. Sterling's movement was very good, though, causing Sweden's slow defense problems throughout.

Clooney was reportedly in Sardinia filming a television miniseries adapted from Joseph Heller's World War II novel Catch-22.

Clooney is thrown over the front of his bike and up in the air before landing on the asphalt, where the vehicle driver and other witnesses come to help.

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 Web site.

Sardinia, a large Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea, is over 500 miles from Clooney's villa in Lake Como.
