Clooney was rushed to the emergency room at John Paul II Hospital, but his condition was not believed to be serious and he was later discharged, doctors confirmed to NBC News.

Local media representatives who had gathered at the hospital said the Oscar-winning actor-director left in a van through a side exit.

George plays US Air Force commander Scheisskopf in the World War Two Channel 4 drama, based on Joseph Heller's classic novel.

Local daily La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney had been headed to a film set on Tuesday when his motorbike was hit by a auto. The accident occurred near Costa Corallina, in the province of Olbia.

The Ocean's Eleven actor hurt his leg when a Mercedes auto allegedly turned without giving right of way and collided with his scooter, AGI said.

The 57-year-old was reportedly thrown from his bike, and his helmet struck the car's windshield, causing it to shatter.

"The auto driver called the 112, the emergency number of Carabinieri, and they sent the Municipal Police, an ambulance and the Fire Dept".

The Italian Carabinieri said the crash happened at 8.15am on Tuesday on State Road 125 from Puntaldia towards Olbia. Police said they have no information, and the hospital didn't respond to requests for comment. He added that Clooney would be monitored by hospital staff as an outpatient for 20 days.
