George Clooney injured in vehicle accident, reports

George Clooney was injured in a road accident in Italy today when his scooter collided with a auto.

The paper also tweeted a photo of his scooter abandoned by the side of the road with a Mercedes estate auto just feet away.

George Clooney was taken to hospital in Sardinia after being involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle, hospital officials have said.

George reportedly felt "a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm", and was given an MRI at the nearby John Paul II hospital, according to local outlet, La Nuova.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people are visible.

Local governor Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday's rescue operation began just after 10am local time and involves 19 divers. Heavy rains lashed the northern Thai region late Monday and a steady downpour has continued Tuesday.

It's thought he has sustained a hip injury from the incident and has since been released from hospital. La Nuova also reports that George's wife, Amal Clooney, rushed to be by his side when she heard news of his hospitalization.

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.

Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman in regards to the accident weren't immediately returned, according to Associated Press. Clooney fell off the scooter and slammed into the windshield of the Mercedes. It's unclear when George will return to filming.

George and Amal met back in 2013 when Amal attended a party at the Ocean's Eleven star's house in Lake Como, Italy.
