Video emerges of George Clooney scooter accident in Italy; actor released from hospital

George Clooney was briefly hospitalized in Italy Tuesday after his scooter collided with a car. The 57-year-old actor was riding a scooter in Olbia on the island of Sardinia when a Mercedes cut across his path and caused a collision, throwing Clooney over the top of his scooter, according to the Associated Press. He was taken to a hospital in Olbia, but his injuries were not serious and he was discharged. “George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital," his representative Stan Rosenfield told USA TODAY. "He is recovering at home and will be fine.” Surveillance video of the crash was obtained late Tuesday by the newspaper Corriere della Sera, the AP reports. It shows a blue Mercedes veering into oncoming traffic, apparently to turn into a residential compound near Olbia.
