Actor-director George Clooney arrived in Rome and crossed the airport runway unassisted just a few days after a scooter crash.

Clooney was still in pain as he cautiously walked through the small airport. He is currently filming his new Hulu series Catch-22, reports etonline.com

Italian authorities had said the 57-year-old actor was involved in a traffic collision on July 10 while riding his scooter near Olbia, Italy. Clooney was going about 60MPH when a Mercedes hit him and that he was thrown about 20 ft in the air.

Surveillance footage of the accident shows that the crash was so bad that it left the actor struggling on the ground in the middle of traffic.

Clooney had slammed his motorbike into an oncoming car that turned suddenly into his lane Tuesday and was thrown several meters (yards) in the air on the Italian island of Sardinia, according to video of the crash.

“He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” Clooney spokesman Stan Rosenfield had said The Associated Press in an email.
