Florida State TE Nick O’Leary survives horrific motorcycle crash (Video)
Florida State tight end Nick O’Leary, who happens to be the grandson of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, was involved in a horrifying motorcycle crash recently in Tallahassee. Because it happened to occur right in front of a public transportation bus, the entire thing was caught on camera.
TomahawkNation.com obtained a copy of the accident report on Wednesday, which stated that a Lexus pulled out in front of O’Leary’s motorcycle and violated his right of way. As you can see, the motorcycle hit the front of the car before slamming into and shattering the windshield of the nearby bus. Somehow, the junior was able to walk away from the accident.
Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher mentioned the crash earlier this month at a press conference, stating that O’Leary “wrecked that daggone scooter and was banged up for about a month.” The accident took place in late May.
Obviously, O’Leary is fortunate to be alive. It’s amazing to hear that he avoided serious injury when you see the damage that was done to the motorcycle, car and bus. As a scandal with this famous college head coach taught us, motorcycles can be incredibly dangerous — especially for high-profile athletes and coaches.
