It shows Clooney's scooter hitting the vehicle, as well as the actor flying into the air and hitting the ground.

It appears George Clooney's motorcycle incident was more serious than we thought, as the actor was reportedly thrown 20 feet in the air.

Surveillance video of the crash, apparently taken by a fixed security video, was obtained by the newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Reuters George Clooney managed to walk away from a scary scooter crash on the island of Sardinia.

"He is recovering at his home and will be fine", a representative for Clooney previously told HuffPost.

Clooney, 57, was then taken to John Paul II hospital after stating he experienced trauma to the pelvis and bruises to one leg and an arm, La Nuova reported.

Clooney was driving 65 miles per hour when the auto entered his lane, he reportedly told John Avlon, his friend and a contributor for CNN.

Clooney is thrown over the front of his bike and up in the air before landing on the asphalt, where the auto driver and other witnesses come to help. Clooney is in Sardinia to film a miniseries based on Joseph Heller's book "Catch 22", the news agency said.

He was staying in a lush, gated rental villa in the high-end Puntaldia neighborhood on Sardinia's northeastern coast, which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Clooney is a frequent visitor to Italy.

Clooney has a home on the Italian mainland, on Lake Como.
