George Clooney was thrown 20ft in the air during crash

George Clooney was reportedly thrown 20 feet in the air when a car smashed into his scooter at 60mph on the Italian island of Sardinia earlier this week.

The 'Monuments Men' star - who is currently shooting his new miniseries 'Catch-22' on the island - was discharged from hospital a few days ago with minor injuries following a nasty collision with another vehicle, but it's believed the smash could've had a different ending as the 57-year-old actor was catapulted into the air and the impact of his helmet falling off his head actually led to the car's windscreen shattering.

Despite the extent of the crash, George was rushed to hospital by ambulance and was later released with non-life threatening injuries and told to recuperate at home.

Rest up and take it easy George!
