Actor George Clooney was taken to the hospital in Sardinia and released after being involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle, hospital officials said.

Clooney was taken to a hospital and the injuries are not believed to be serious, according to La Nuova.

A photo published on La Nuova Sardegna website shows a black scooter on one side of the road, with a dark blue estate auto facing the other way, at an angle across the central reserve.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people from the accident were involved. La Nuova also reports that George's wife, Amal Clooney, rushed to be by his side when she heard news of his hospitalization.

Clooney is now filming TV drama Catch-22 on the Italian island.

Clooney arrived in Sardinia to direct a TV miniseries called Catch 22, based on the novel by American author Joseph Heller set during World War II.

They all came together at the up-market Il Marino di Puntaldia restaurants after George had finished filming.
