One of the most famous Kentuckians was in a very scary scooter accident and he is lucky to be alive.
George Clooney was riding along a road on the Italian island of Sardinia when he collided head-on with a blue Mercedes. The car veered into oncoming traffic, which resulted in Clooney crashing into the front of the car at a high speed and then flying into the air and onto the asphalt.
The actor could not move his head or legs as his bodyguards rushed to his side, according to reports. He was hospitalized but then discharged two hours later with injuries to his pelvis, leg and arm.
Surveillance video was released today:
As you can see, that could’ve been much, much worse for the Oscar-winning Kentuckian.
