Mannoni said police are looking into the causes of the accident.

A Sardinian newspaper, Nuova Sardegna, posted an image of the incident on Twitter with a story that suggested Clooney was heading to the set of his latest project. His wife, Amal, rushed to her husband's side at the hospital, and left with the superstar after his injuries were deemed minor. "He is recovering at his home and will be fine", a publicist for the actor told Yahoo Entertainment.

The "Ocean's 11" actor is now filming Hulu's "Catch-22" series on the island.

According to NBC reporter Claudio Lavanga, the Sardinia hospital where Clooney was being treated has already discharged the actor. A photo tweeted by the local news outlet shows a motorcycle beside a slightly damaged Mercedes and a fire extinguisher.

They are charged with violating Section 3 [1] [c] of the colonial-era law, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison. Yet the arrest failed to quash their story, which Reuters eventually published as a special report in February.

He then is seen tumbling onto the ground after he appeared to hit the windscreen of the vehicle.

The couple have also been joined by George's parents, Nina and Nick Clooney, and Amal's mother Baria Alamuddin.

Clooney is a frequent visitor to Italy and even has a home in the northern part of the country, at Lake Como. According to China Daily, in 2007, Clooney and an ex-girlfriend (Sarah Larson) were injured when their motorcycle collided with a vehicle in Weehawken, New Jersey.

He was treated and released, hospital officials said. George suffered a broken rib and some other scrapes and bruises, while Sarah was diagnosed with a broken foot. It's unclear when George will return to filming.
