George Clooney has been taken to the hospital by ambulance after his scooter crashed into a car. The Hollywood star was left injured after the scary event took place in Sardinia, Italy, where he’s currently filming an upcoming TV show, Catch-22. After being taken to John Paul II hospital in Olbia, the Hollywood star has come out of the crash mostly unscathed, aside from a minor knee injury, according to a Sassari town hall official. He has since been discharged.

A representative for the actor confirmed his well-being to Just Jared , saying in a statement: “George Clooney was treated and released from an Olbia hospital. He is recovering at his home and will be fine.” Though the father of two wasn’t seriously hurt, that didn’t stop fans from worrying, with one turning to Twitter to say: “I saw George Clooney trending and almost had a heart attack,” while another declared: “George Clooney should not be tampered with 2018!”

The Ocean’s 11 actor has a home in the Italian region of Lake Como with his family, including his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, and their one-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella. Some lucky fans scored a rare glimpse at the family as a whole as they arrived in Italy via private plane, disembarking the aircraft with their cute kids. Though the Clooney clan typically reside in either Los Angeles or the British countryside, they’ve relocated to the European country for the duration of George’s work.

While the 57-year-old is busy working on his film projects, Amal has had other things on the go. She recently paid her very first visit to Toronto alongside her father-in-law, journalist Nick Clooney. The two took to the Roy Thomson Hall stage on June 23 for the city’s Luminato event to discuss world issues, like the refugee crisis. “I am a refugee,” she said to the sold-out crowd. “If I had no had a hand extended to me by the U.K. government when my family was escaping war in Lebanon, I wouldn’t have been able to grow up in a safe environment, get the education I have, or do any of the things that I have done.”
