Nick O'Leary, the grandson of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus and Florida State's starting tight end, miraculously walked away from a horrific motorcycle crash in May, and a video of the wreck has recently surfaced on the internet.

A camera on a public bus in Tallahassee captured the 20-year-old Seminoles player riding his sport bike before slamming into a car crossing the road. The video then shows the 6-foot-3, 246-pound O'Leary being catapulted into the air, nearly hitting the bus, which was parked in the opposite lane of traffic.

According to an accident report obtained by TomahawkNation.com, O'Leary slid approximately 100 feet on the pavement following his impromptu flight from his bike.

By all accounts, the 20-year-old from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. suffered only minor injuries in the accident and appears set to play in FSU's season opener September 2 against Pittsburgh.

The driver of the vehicle was found to be at fault for the wreck.

O'Leary recorded 21 receptions for 231 yards and three touchdowns in 2012.
