    One tough and very lucky hombre. IOWA CITY, Iowa (CNN) - A University of Iowa football player was riding his motorcycle in downtown Iowa City on Monday, when he was hit by a pick-up truck.



    The whole crash was caught on tape by a nearby officer.



    You can see Josh Koeppel coming from the left on a motorcycle...

    A white truck suddenly goes through the intersection, hitting the bike and sending Koeppel flying into the air.



    Amazingly, he gets right up.



    He was taken to the hospital to be checked out and was released the same day.



    The truck driver was cited for not yielding while making a left turn.











    Video made my skin crawl.



    The morning sun was in the suv's driver's eyes
