University of Iowa Hawkeyes center Josh Koeppel has survived what would appear to be a horrific accident with only some scrapes, bruises, and soreness. The video below was taken by a nearby police car and shows Koeppel on a motorcycle being slammed head-on by a pickup truck.
Fortunately for Koeppel the police car was already at the scene and could call medical staff straight away.
Clearly the resulting impact would have been painful; at one point we even see Koeppel thrown into the air, head over heels and then back onto the ground. However, moments later we see the Hawkeyes center standing up and walking.
In any case, Koeppel will likely miss the season opener against Eastern Illinois on Saturday, but something tells us he won’t mind too much.
