As RadarOnline.com readers know, the Hollywood actor was flung 20 feet in the air by a vehicle who hit his scooter as he was heading toward the set of Catch-22 in Costa Corallina, Italy.
Clooney, 57, was on the road in Sardinia with his bodyguards when a local driving at 60 MPH failed to respect the right of way and crashed onto the actor.
Clooney's helmet shattered the car's windshield on impact, but luckily, the head gear saved his life.
The regretful driver called an ambulance after hitting the four-time Golden Globe winner and waited until he was transported to a nearby hospital. There, Clooney underwent various tests including an MRI scan and checked out of the ER with a few painful bruises.
George Clooney had no alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of the crash. He is expected to recover within 20 days.
