George Clooney was injured Tuesday after his scooter was hit by a auto on the Italian island of Sardinia, police and hospital officials said.

Italian media reported that Clooney was knocked off his bike by a vehicle and taken to a local hospital. Clooney described himself as being "banged up", CNN said.

Clooney is now filming his new TV series "Catch 22" on the island, which also features Hugh Laurie and Austin Stowell ("Whiplash").

"George was treated and released from an Olbia hospital", the rep told "Good Morning America" in a statement Tuesday.
