The actor and father-of-two was flung meters into the air when he slammed into an oncoming vehicle.

Actor George Clooney was taken to the hospital in Sardinia and released after his motor scooter and a vehicle crashed on a state road on the Italian island Tuesday, hospital officials said.

It appears George Clooney's motorcycle incident was more serious than we thought, as the actor was reportedly thrown 20 feet in the air.

Surveillance video of the crash, apparently taken by a fixed security video, was obtained late Tuesday by the newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Russian Federation v Croatia quarter-final
The hosts came into the tournament as the lowest-ranked team but began with a bang by beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 and Egypt 3-1. A Modric corner found a Lovren head inside the last five minutes, but the center back could only send the ball meekly over.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia confirmed Clooney was treated there and released after Tuesday's accident, in which Clooney's scooter and a blue Mercedes sedan collided along a curve in the road. He fell. The vehicle driver called an ambulance.

The actor is fine and recovering at home.

The Clooney family, including Amal Clooney, and the couple's 1-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella, have relocated to Italy for the filming. Clooney is in Sardinia to film a miniseries based on Joseph Heller's book "Catch 22", the news agency said.

Clooney, the husband of leading human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has a home on the Italian mainland at Lake Como.
