It has been revealed that Hollywood actor, George Clooney’s scooter accident was way more serious than everyone first thought.
According to TMZ, the actor literally became a human projectile after impact.
Sources with direct knowledge of the crash reportedly told TMZ that Clooney was doing 60 MPH when a car suddenly pulled in front of him.
Clooney was thrown from his bike and his helmet struck the car’s windshield, causing it to shatter. The force of the impact actually broke his helmet.
TMZ reports that Clooney was hurled twenty feet in the air, while he was actually propelled over the car he hit.
“We contacted Clooney’s rep who confirmed these details.
“Clooney was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital, treated and released. He’s at home recovering. We’re told none of the injuries were life-threatening”.
It will be recalled that actor was taken to John Paul II hospital, but has since been discharged after a visit by his wife Amal after the accident.
Local news sources say the actor had “a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm”.
Clooney is in Italy (aside from the fact that he famously has a home in Lake Como) to shoot a Hulu series in Sardinia.
He was reportedly heading to the set when he was struck by the car. Luckily, he is safe now and recuperating with Amal and his newborn twins by his side.
