George is on the mend following the scary motorcycle accident on Tuesday.

“He was treated and released from an Olbia hospital. He is recovering at his home and will be fine,” a publicist for the actor told Yahoo Entertainment.

The Money Monster star was going 60 mph and thrown 20 feet in the air, TMZ reported.

The publication has since released the shocking footage showing the moment of impact. The actor’s helmet struck the car’s windshield, causing it to shatter and the helmet to break.

George was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

This isn’t the first time he has been involved in a motorcycle accident. In 2007, George and former girlfriend Sarah Larson were involved in a crash in New Jersey.

At the time he suffered a broken rib, and she broke her foot.
