George Clooney has been injured after a motorcyle he was riding collided with a pickup truck in Sardinia, Italian media reports.

A local paper said the star's injuries were not serious, but that he was taken to the emergency room.

A representative for Clooney tells InStyle that the actor "was treated and released from an Olbia hospital".

"George Clooney fell and slammed the windshield of the Mercedes", said Cicognani in an email to the paper.

A local news agency and newspaper suggest Clooney has a suspected hip injury, but is not seriously injured.

George Clooney has been taken to the hospital by ambulance after his scooter crashed into a vehicle.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clooney is now recovering at his home following the accident.

Clooney has a Lake Como home on the Italian mainland.

In pictures from the crash, obtained by the MailOnline, the auto involved in the crash appears to have a smashed windscreen, suggesting George may even have hit it during the crash.

Despite the potential severity of the accident, after receiving an MRI Clooney was discharged from the hospital at 10 a.m. George arrived in Italy with his family in late June, where they will be based while he films his new TV show.

He was said to be travelling 60mph at the time when the vehicle reportedly changed direction suddenly and collided with the bike.
