The 57-year-old Academy Award victor was traveling on a state road in Costa Corallina, a province of Olbia, when the crash occurred, TGCOM24 reported.

"A auto did not respect the right of way and hit him", the tweet read.

A photo of the scene showed a black scooter near a fire extinguisher, with a blue vehicle facing in the opposite direction, per Sky News, which reports the 57-year-old star was taken to a hospital by ambulance but suffered only minor injuries to his knee, and possibly pelvis, along with bruises.

Olbia police commander Giovanni Mannoni told the outlet that Clooney did not suffer any serious injuries and he will be monitored by hospital staff as an outpatient for the next 20 days.

The hospital confirmed to NBC News that Clooney has already been discharged.

Clooney is in Sardinia to film a miniseries based on Joseph Heller's book "Catch 22", the news agency said.
