New Details In Death of QB Dwayne Haskins

(Wednesday, April 20, 2022) – We now know why Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was walking on a busy highway early April 9th in Fort Lauderdale, Florida before he was fatally struck by a dump truck.

According to 911 recordings released Wednesday, the wife of the 24-year-old Haskins called Florida dispatchers shortly after he was fatally struck, saying Haskins’ car had run out of gas and she was worried because he was not answering the phone.

Kalabrya Haskins was in Pittsburgh and not aware of the accident.  She had called 911 seeking help in locating her husband. “I just want somebody to go in the area and see if his car is there and if he’s OK and if anything happened to him,” she said.  “It’s not like him to not call back.”

The 911 dispatcher had already received calls about the accident that happened around 6am on Interstate 595 near Fort-Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The accident report says witnesses told investigators that Haskins was trying to cross the busy highway when he went into the path of the dump truck. That truck knocked him into the path of a car.  Haskins was also struck by the car.  He died on the scene.
