We almost lost George Clooney

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.

    My sources say that it wouldn’t have been that big of a loss…

    No way it was 60 mph! I saw the video and it looked much closer to 30-35 mph. at 60 mph he would have been thrown well past the car he hit. In the video he landed beside the car. He was very lucky!

    Well if you ride a scooter, be prepared to get hit. People cant put their phones down long enough to drive.

      Sad. But true. Lots of idiots out there. I sold my motorcycle last year. Hated to, but it’s too dangerous. People aren’t watching

    Probably little more than a “stinger” to the spinal column, which is scary as hell nonetheless. It’s good to see that he was able to leave the hospital so quickly. I’ve had a few of those come through my ER in the past.

    Riding a bike on the road in the midst of vehicles is an huge risk in and of itself.

    He was discharged in less than 2 hours…this is the kind of hyperbole we typically get from Jack Pilgrim..you can do better Drew!

    He hit a car head-on douchebag. Where’s the hyperbole?

    Any loss of life is bad. Unless it’s the Passages Malibu db, or the fake doctor from the drug addiction network commercials. I think those would be ok.
