Local daily La Nuova Sardegna says Clooney’s injuries aren’t serious, but that he was taken to the John Paul II hospital emergency room.  Police said they have no information, and the hospital didn’t respond to requests for comment.

The daily says the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday (10 JULY 2018) when his motorbike was hit by a car.  Private Mediaset, citing gossip magazine Chi, said the accident occurred near Costa Corallina, in the province of Olbia.

Clooney has a home on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como.
