Hollywood actor George Clooney, 57, was thrown 20 feet in the air when a vehicle going 60 MPH hit him while he was riding his scooter toward the Catch-22 set in Costa Corallina.
He suffered "a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm," according to La Nuova, and had to undergo various tests — including an MRI — after the brutal accident.
After the actor was flung into the air, he landed on the car's windshield and shattered the glass with his helmet.
As apparent from shocking local police photos, the helmet likely saved Clooney's life.
The driver who accidentally injured Clooney reportedly called an ambulance and stayed with the star until medical emergency teams arrived. According to NBC, he had not respected the right of way.
Thankfully, none of George Clooney's injuries were life-threatening, and he is currently in stable condition.
