The accident happened in May, but the video was just released. Taken from a city bus camera, the video shows Nick O’Leary riding his sportbike on Mission Rd when a driver in a Lexus pulled out in front of him and he hits the front end, throwing him over the hood, narrowly missing the bus and skidding on the pavement 75-100 feet behind the bus. Although it appears O’Leary loses his helmet, the Florida State tight end was able to get up and walk away. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said at the ACC Football Kickoff that O’Leary “was banged up for about a month.” But Fisher said O’Leary has recovered.
O’Leary is the grandson of golf legend Jack Nicklaus.
