George Clooney 'has been injured in a bike accident in Sardinia'

Local reports say he was on his way to the set when a auto hit the bike he was riding.

"A auto did not respect the right of way and hit him", the tweet read.

A photo from the Italian website La Nuova showed the car's windshield cracked.

A fire extinguisher can be seen on the road but no people from the accident were involved.

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

According to the Italian newspaper La Nuova Sardegna, the actor was travelling towards the set of his new television series Catch 22 when his scooter encountered a suddenly turning auto.

He was joined by wife Amal Clooney and it has been reported that the pair left the hospital together in a private vehicle.

Their outing comes amid reports that the pair are renting a attractive two-storey villa from Ezio Maria Simonelli, an accountant and man close to former Italian president Silvio Berlusconi.

The Hulu mini-series is based on Joseph Heller's novel about a US Air Force bombardier who aims to fly sufficient missions to go back home and leave World War II behind.

Immediately after the crash, Clooney was transported to a nearby hospital.

Italian media reports Clooney has already been released from the hospital.

In April, the legendary thespian announced he was cutting down his acting role in the Hulu production so he could focus on directing.
