Plumber who hit George Clooney claims he was blinded by the sun

George Clooney and Amal Clooney AFI Gala

The 58-year-old actor was catapulted into the air after a auto smashed into his moped as he was driving to the set of his new series "Catch-22" in Sardinia, Italy, on Monday and, although he managed to escape with minor injuries to his leg, Antonello Viglino - who was driving the vehicle - understands it could've been worse. Clooney is now filming a new series, "Catch 22", based on the classic novel by Joseph Heller.

In the photos, Clooney appears to brace himself as he climbs out of a golf cart and onto the set of stairs connected to the jet. Local media gathered at the hospital said he and Amal Clooney left through a side exit.

A source told ET that Clooney was going about 60 miles per hour when the Mercedes Benz hit him and that he was thrown about 20 feet in the air.

The family's trip to Italy was cut short after Clooney, who was also there filming his new TV series Catch 22, was hospitalized for a brief time following the crash. See the first photos of the actor after being released from the hospital, below. Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera later obtained shocking surveillance video from a nearby camera showing just how serious the accident was, with Clooney being thrown high into the air due to the impact.

His spokesman Stan Rosenfield said: "He is recovering at his home and will be fine".

George Clooney was injured after getting into a motorbike accident in Sardinia, Italy. "I could never have imagined that I would have hit George Clooney". Amal recently told Vogue that she met George through a mutual friend at his Lake Como home, saying that the progression of their relationship was "the most natural thing in the world". It wasn't obvious that it was going to happen for me.
