I did not make this headline up
OT- Iowa lineman in serious scooter accident captured on camera, will be ok
Scary, scary shit. Motorcycles (and scooters) are fun to ride, but cars just don't seem to see them.
Thankfully he's fine.
of being struck by a car when riding my bicycle to north campus. Luckily I walked away, and it seems this guy was lucky too.
Was she Asian?
This wasnt recently was it? (wasnt me, but I saw an accident this summer).
that was some collision. wow, wow, wow.
Thank God he is oK.
Oh shit! What was that that went flying in the air? Was that his shoe? Lucky to be alive, that's for sure.
Yes, that was his shoe. I heard it being discussed on the radio during lunch.
Dane Cook wasn't lying...?
my friend once told me riding a moped is like doing it with a fat chick.
fun to ride, but you dont want your friends to see you on one.
glad he is ok but Oline should not be on scooters
Holy moses! That looked Ben Roethlisberger esque! I wanna know what kind of condition he's in! My prayers to him.
That was a bad wreck. Hope he makes a full recovery.
Most motorcycle/moped versus cars down here are very serious. Then again, they are not required to wear helmets so you can use your imagination. I've been to several of those accident scenes.
When I was younger, I almost did this to a dude on a bike; scared the living hell out of me. No one walked or biked anywhere where I grew up (Waterford) so pedestrian right-of-way on left turns was a new concept to me.
I wonder where this was, because I have friends in Iowa City and have driven around there a couple times, and all the left turns I encountered were solid red and they didn't blink on green. You had to wait for the arrow every time.
My junior year my friend had a moped that he rode to football practice everyday, and one time I just took off on it messing around and smashed straight into the school on it. Luckily myself, and the moped were okay.
Koeppel is dealing with lingering soreness
That part was probably unnecessary. I would have gone with
despite his injuries not being severe, Koeppel got HIT BY A FREEKING TRUCK, and therefore doesn't have to justify his absence.
or Brandon Graham? In all seriousness, I wish him a speedy recovery. (no pun intended)
laughed really hard at that. I am sorry.
Well at least he knows how it will feel when Martin lines up across him
he'll actually be wearing a helmet when Martin hits him......not that it will keep his limbs from being severed, but it might protect his head a little more.
the loser is always the same, no matter who was at fault.
When my daughter was at school at Wisconsin, she said that scooters were real common, and that lots of FB players rode them. Crashes happened all the time. It's a great combo—Madison+beer+scooters... what can go wrong?
The Iowa City plaintiff's bar must be all over that poor guy. The driver of that truck is going to owe somebody some money. Unless Koeppel ran the light, or something.
Wow, he's really lucky he suffered no major injuries from that hit.
