The newspaper tweeted a photo apparently from the scene, showing a lightly smashed up motorbike and auto, with a caption suggesting the vehicle had been turning and Clooney had made contact with its windscreen.
According to La Nuova Sardegna, a local news site, Clooney only suffered a knee injury.
Clooney is now filming his new TV series "Catch 22" on the island, which also features Hugh Laurie and Austin Stowell ("Whiplash"). The star shares two children, Ella and Alexander, with his wife, Amal Clooney, and fans caught a rare glimpse of the adorable twins as the family disembarked from their private jet, with George holding one of the babies while holding onto a musical storybook, while Amal cradled the other child.
Clooney is staying on the Italian island while he films a new TV series, "Catch 22", based on the classic 1961 novel by Joseph Heller.
