George Clooney experienced a major accident back in July last year when he was on his way to film his new mini-series “Catch-22.” In a recent interview, the actor shared details about the accident and revealed that he thought he was going to die when the accident happened.

The accident happened when Clooney was riding his motorcycle, and he hit a car. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor revealed that he hit the car when he was traveling at the speed of 70 miles per hour.

Clooney revealed that the accident was so severe that it split his helmet in half and knocked him out of his shoes. The actor went flying into the air and broke the car’s windshield with his head. He said that he thought he broke his neck and did not expect to survive that crash.

“I was just waiting for the switch to turn off because I broke his windshield with my head,” Clooney said.

Clooney said that if he had nine lives, he used them all in that one accident. An Olbia police officer previously told Us Weekly that the driver of the car immediately recognized that it was his fault, and the driver was the first to call emergency services and the police. The driver reportedly turned his car “without respecting the road laws.”

In a previous interview with “The Ellen Show,” Clooney said that if that accident were to happen 100 times he would not survive it 99 times. After the accident, the actor and his wife Amal Clooney decided that he should not ride a motorcycle again.

“Catch-22” director Grant Heslov, who was there with the actor while they waited for the ambulance, also said that he made a promise to himself at that time never ride a motorcycle if Clooney survived the accident.
