Italian driver says how Clooney's scooter 'slammed' his car

By The Associated Press

ROME (AP) — The driver of a station wagon hit by George Clooney's scooter in Italy says he was waiting to turn when a scooter whizzed by, then the actor's slammed into him.

Italian news agency ANSA, reporting Wednesday from Sardinia, quoted Antonello Viglino as saying he was "stationary on the roadway," ready to turn left when two motorcycles came from the other direction Tuesday morning.

Viglino, 67, says the first "avoided collision" but the second "slammed into me."

Clooney was treated at a hospital and released after a few hours to recover in Sardinia, where he's filming a TV miniseries.

Separately, Corriere della Sera daily quoted Viglino as saying "I didn't see anything, I had the sun in my eyes" and had just slightly moved into the opposite lane.
