Postado Julho 13, 2018

Clooney, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from the scooter and flew 20 feet in the air.

George Clooney has been photographed hobbling onto a plane after his motorcycle accident, with help from his wife Amal Clooney and his infant daughter, Ella.

Photos published by the Daily Mail Thursday showing Clooney, his wife Amal and their children boarding a private jet.

On Tuesday, the actor was hit by an oncoming vehicle - the driver failed to give way to Clooney - while on the Italian island of Sardinia.

Speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera on Wednesday, Antonello - a plumber - said: "I couldn't see anything, I had the sun in my eyes. I was about to turn, I just got over the line".

The "Monuments Men" star was rushed to John Paul II Hospital in the nearby town of Olbia via an ambulance after the crash but was later discharged with minor injuries. Clooney is now filming a new series, "Catch 22", based on the classic novel by Joseph Heller. After complaining of "a slight trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and arm", he was hospitalized, where he underwent an MRI, La Nuova reports.

Although he suffered no broken bones, he will need physiotherapy to his knee.

Thankfully, a rep for Clooney told ET that while the actor was hospitalized after the incident, he's now on the mend. TMZ reports that he was traveling at 60 miles per hour and that the impact broke his helmet.

His spokesman Stan Rosenfield said: "He is recovering at his home and will be fine". Clooney's helmet hit the windshield and broke due to the force of the impact.
