Iowa Lineman Josh Koeppel Trucked By A Truck While Riding Moped (Video)
Iowa Hawkeyes’ center Josh Koeppel has been competing for a starting job with the son of head coach Kirk Ferentz, and while it appears as though he was destined to finish in second in that competition, it was not the only battle he would lose this week. Early Monday morning, Koeppel was taking his moped out for a ride around the Iowa campus when he was met by a Ford F-150. Needless to say, the F-150 would come out on top in that head-to-head battle.
Here is footage of the incident.
Koeppel was able to walk away from the accident with only a few bumps, bruises and cuts, but according to Ferentz, he will not dress for the Hawkeyes’ season opener against Eastern Illinois. We still aren’t sure if that is because of any sustained injuries from the accident, or simply a coach’s decision to give his son the opportunity to start.
