JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former LSU running back and seemingly all-around good guy Leonard Fournette made the most of a car crash he was involved in Tuesday, giving a very special memento to a paramedic who lent him a hand.

Football fans in Louisiana and Florida were worried when they heard that Fournette, who's now a starting running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was involved in a car crash. Luckily, no one was hurt and authorities say the woman who crashed into Fournette is being cited for reckless driving.

The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed it responded to the crash and added that Fournette was incredibly thankful to its officer and others who helped out.

But Fournette must have been especially thankful to the paramedic who responded to his crash, because that person left with a unique memento from the chance encounter.

Yep, the former Tiger actually signed his wrecked bumper and gifted it to an overjoyed EMS worker, making the best out of a less-than-ideal situation.

You can see Fournette in action on Sunday when the Jaguars take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game.
