Jack Nicklaus' grandson Nick O'Leary plays football at Florida State, and he is one tough dude. He proved it by walking away from a horrific motorcycle crash. 

The accident occurred in Tallahassee on May 2. Tomahawk Nation, which covers Florida State athletics, got hold of the video footage and recently published it. The wreck was captured by a camera on board a Tallahassee city bus that also was involved.

You can watch the video here.

O'Leary was coming down Mission Road when a car pulled out right in front of him. O'Leary struck the car, sending both him and his bike flying. The bike smashed into the front of the Star Metro Bus, which was stopped on the other side of the road while a passenger got off, shattering its windshield. Fortunately for O'Leary, he missed the bus, and skidded approximately 100 feet down the road.

Also very fortunate was the passenger who had just gotten off the bus. He was retrieving his bicycle from the front of the bus, and the flying motorcycle barely missed him.

Tomahawk Nation discovered the footage, and the accident report, after being tipped off by an unknown source.

Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher referenced the accident at a press conference earlier this month, Tomahawk Nation said, saying that the 247-pound O'Leary was looking ''very good'' after he ''wrecked that daggone scooter and was banged up for about a month.''
