George Clooney fractured a rib and his girlfriend broke her foot when the two were knocked off his motorcycle by a car in New Jersey on Friday.
Clooney and his companion, Sarah Larson, were treated for their injuries at the Palisades Medical Center, across the Hudson River from Manhattan, and were released, spokesman Stan Rosenfield said.
“He was treated for a hairline fracture of a rib and road rash,” he said. Larson, who was a passenger on the motorcycle driven by Clooney, suffered a broken foot. Both were wearing helmets.
It was later reported that Clooney could face dangerous driving charges in connection with accident.Albert Sciancalepore, driver of the car involved, blamed Clooney for the crash.
According to Weehawken Police Sergeant Sean Kelly, Clooney might have attempted to pass Sciancalepore’s Mazda on the right which tried to take a right hand turn from the left lane.
“It’s a he-said, she-said right now, but you can’t pass on the right in Weehawken or anywhere in Jersey,” Kelly said.
But at this time it doesn’t look like Sciancalepore plans on pressing any charges or collecting compensation for the minor damages to his car. He dismisses reports he was signalling left as he turned right on a street in Palisades – and collided with Clooney.
“I did not see him at all… To me, it’s his fault. “He’s a good actor, he seems like a good human being, there’s no reason why I’d want to go after his money.”
