VIDEO: FSU tight-end crashes motorcycle in horrific crash, manages to walk away

TALLAHASSEE - A video featuring Florida State University's starting tight-end Nick O'Leary got over 1.1 million views in less than two days, but it was a horrific accident off the football field that has people buzzing.

O'Leary, who is the grandson of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, was riding on his motorcycle in Tallahassee when he collided into a car cutting across the road back in May., according to a Tomahawk Nation report. ( http://wfts.tv/1bUqfPO )

Footage captured O'Leary going airborne, flying off his motorcycle, just past the windshield of a city bus that was stopped at a bus stop.

The motorcycle slammed right into the bus' windshield and shattered.

Amazingly, O'Leary was able to walk away from the crash. He recovered fairly quick, or as FSU coach Jumbo Fisher put it, "He wrecked that daggone scooter and was banged up for about a month." 

O'Leary is expected to start for Florida State in the fall. Check out the video below or click here: http://youtu.be/OjN90iHtXcI
