Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone, which means celebrities are no exception. Celebrities have found themselves in near-death situations and sometimes things were so serious, they found themselves in headlines the next day. Luckily, they’ve lived to tell the tale. Just ask Leonardo DiCaprio.

In July 2018, George Clooney became a human projectile and it wasn’t a stunt for a new movie. While on the Italian island of Sardinia, Clooney was riding a motor-scooter when a car cut him off. The driver ended up hitting Clooney, who was launched 20 feet off his bike and broke his helmet.
The actor was rushed to the hospital where he underwent an MRI, but he appeared to be in decent condition. Since leaving the hospital, Clooney was back to filming his Hulu series Catch-22 and appeared to be in high spirits.
