The 57-year-old Academy Award victor was traveling on a state road in Costa Corallina, a province of Olbia, when the crash occurred, TGCOM24 reported.

Mr Clooney was driving from his rented villa in Punta Aldia to Capo Ceraso, on the Sardinian coast, where he is filming a TV series based on the Second World War novel Catch-22.

The Hollywood actor collided with a Mercedes auto on Tuesday morning while in Puntaldia, Sardinia, on the way to a TV set. A photo from the scene shows the car's smashed windshield.
