Clooney, 57, was leaving his hotel in Costa Corallina and headed to the set of “Catch-22,” a television adaptation of the Joseph Heller novel, on Tuesday when his moped crashed into a station wagon, ABC News confirmed.

The actor was taken via ambulance to a local hospital and released later the same day. The actor suffered minor injuries, according to the BBC.

“Catch-22” is slated to air next year.

Clooney is a frequent visitor to Italy and even has a home in the northern part of the country, at Lake Como. In fact, the actor said in an interview last year that he fell in love with his wife Amal Clooney after meeting her in the area in 2013.

“She sent some pictures from when she was here, and we were writing each other, emailing, talking, mostly about what was going on in each other’s lives,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “Over a period of time, it became clear we were more than just friends.”

The two were married in 2014 at the Aman Canal Grande resort in Venice, Italy.
