Dwayne Haskins, a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was tragically killed on April 9, 2022, when he was run over and killed by a dump truck on a Florida highway. On May 23, 2023, the toxicology report and the investigative report were released by the Broward County Medical Examiner and law enforcement officials.
According to the study, Haskins’ blood alcohol readings were .24 and.20, which is three times the state of Florida’s.08 legal limit. He also showed positive results for ketamine and norketamine. Blunt force trauma was identified as the cause of death.
The April Car Crash That Killed Former First-Round Pick Dwayne Haskins
Haskins, a former first-round draft pick from Ohio State chosen by the Washington team, was 24 years old when he was released and signed as a backup quarterback by the Steelers.
According to a report by law enforcement officials trying to piece together Haskins’ final hours, he had dinner with a friend or relative before going to a South Florida nightclub where “they drank heavily and at some point, they got into a fight, separating.”
Haskins’ car had run out of gas on the motorway after departing. Haskins then got out of his car to buy gas, and that’s when the truck hit him.
His wife, Kalabrya Haskins, reported that her husband contacted her and told her he was going to get petrol to a 911 police dispatcher. She contacted 911 to ask for a welfare check because Haskins hadn’t called back to give her an update.
According to the report, this traffic incident was an accident. No one has been put on trial for a crime. The crash study in April came to the conclusion that the driver was not at fault. Haskins was also struck by a second vehicle that attempted to avoid him.
Numerous publications, including Andy Slater of Fox Sports in Miami, quoted the medical examiner’s inquiry report, which also stated that Haskins had a “female companion” in the car with him who claimed that he had gone to get gas for the vehicle. According to the investigation, her relationship with Haskins was not established.
