"There was an accident and he did break his hand," Clooney's rep, Stan Rosenfield, told Access.
"He was not riding a motorcycle, it was not in Switzerland... He was on
his property in Italy and he shut the car door on his hand."
Clooney was treated at the private Ars Medica clinic in Gravesano, Switzerland, located near his Lake Como, Italy home.

doctor has given him 30-40 years more to live, and no live animals were
harmed during the wrapping of the hand," Clooney's rep joked, "The only
reason he went to the hospital was to get a temporary cast put on."
This is not Clooney's first road bump. In 2007, the actor and then-girlfriend Sarah Larson
collided with a car while riding his motorcycle in New Jersey. The
actor suffered a hairline fracture on one of his ribs along with some
scrapes and bruises. Larson broke her foot during the accident.
