Clooney, friend hurt in motorcycle crash



George Clooney and a pal were hurt in a motorcycle accident Friday when a boneheaded Jersey driver turned into them, the AP reports.

Clooney broke a rib and suffered some road rash while his passenger, Sarah Larson, suffered a broken foot. The two were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen and released, Clooney's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said.

"He's doing fine," Rosenfield said. "He has a broken rib, it's very painful and it'll take a long time to heal."

Both were wearing helmets at the time, when some as-yet-unidentified idiot in Weehawken put on their left blinker and promptly turned into Clooney as he passed them on the right.

Of course, that's Rosenfield's take, and authorities were quick to point out passing on the right was illegal in any instance.
