George Clooney has reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries in a road accident in Italy after his scooter collided with a car.

According to state-owned Italian broadcaster TGR, the 57-year-old was was taking a break from filming in Sardinia when the accident occurred near the beach resort of Costa Corallina in Olbia.

Sardinian newspaper La Nuova posted a picture from the scene showing Clooney's scooter, a Mercedes car and a fire extinguisher with the caption: "George Clooney in hospital: With his bike he ended up hitting a car that was turning".

The image showed slight damage to the actor's bike and smashed glass to the left of the Mercedes car's windscreen.

NBC News reporter Claudio Lavagna tweeted: "George Clooney has already been discharged following collision between the scooter he was traveling on and a car. Clooney is in Sardinia to direct a TV series called Catch 22."

It comes after Clooney was pictured stepping off a private jet in Sardinia with wife Amal, 40, and infant twins, Alexander and Ella, last month.

The A-list couple are believed to have brought their parents to the Italian island to help care for the children while Clooney works.
