The DRAMATIC footage emerged today showing George Clooney being flung 20ft into the air after a front-on collision with a Mercedes in Sardinia yesterday.
The actor’s helmet shattered as he smashed against the car’s windshield at around 60mph after the driver, apparently in his 60s, abruptly turned into his lane.
The actor was driving from his home in Puntaldia to a film set in Olbia, on the north-east coast, when the blue Mercedes veered into oncoming traffic.
Heart-stopping CCTV footage, obtained by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, the Ocean’s 11 star flipping over the handlebars before hitting the ground.
His spokesman Stan Rosenfield has since said: “He is recovering at his home and will be fine.”
It is believed the driver, who quickly rushed to Clooney’s aid, was trying to turn into a residential compound near Olbia.
The Hollywood heartthrob was found lying in the road with injuries to his pelvis and bruising to his knee and arm.
Images from State Road 125 showed slight damage to his bike while the left side of the car windscreen was badly smashed.
The driver called an ambulance and waited with father-of-two Clooney until medics arrived to take him to John Paul II Hospital.
A police spokesman said: ”The driver of the car was a local man in his 60s and we are speaking to him about what happened.
”It was fortunate the man on the motorbike was wearing a helmet as his head hit the windscreen which smashed.”
His wife Amal, 40, rushed to hospital to be at his side and he was discharged just two hours later.
