It appears George Clooney's motorcycle incident was more serious than we thought, as the actor was reportedly thrown 20 feet in the air.

The actor slammed his motorbike into an oncoming auto that turned suddenly into his lane on Tuesday and was thrown several meters in the air on the Italian island of Sardinia, according to a video of the crash.

Clooney was riding the scooter near Olbia when a auto cut across the actor's path at an intersection, resulting in a collision, Lt. Alberto Cicognani of the Carabinieri Italian military force said to NBC News.

The John Paul II hospital in Olbia said Clooney was released Tuesday. The American is on location in Sardinia to film a new mini-series Catch-22.




Sources have told TMZ that George was doing 60 miles per hour when a auto suddenly pulled in front of him. Calls and emails to Clooney's spokesman weren't immediately returned.

Daily newspaper La Nuova Sardegna said the 57-year-old Clooney was heading to a film set when the Mercedes hit his motorbike at a curve in the road near the entrance to the Costa Corallina residential compound, in the province of Olbia. Staff at the home declined to comment.

Clooney, the husband of leading human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has a home on the Italian mainland at Lake Como.
