Toxicology report finds QB Dwayne Haskins was drunk when hit by truck

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was intoxicated when a dump truck hit and killed him on a Florida interstate earlier this year, according to a toxicology report released Monday by the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The medical examiner’s office determined that Haskins had a blood-alcohol concentration of at least 0.20% at the time of his autopsy, more than double the legal limit in Florida of .08%.

An accompanying investigation report states Haskins went to a club and “drank heavily” the night prior to his death.

Haskins’ death has been ruled an accident, according to the autopsy report released Monday, with the cause of death listed as “multiple blunt force injuries.” He was 24.

A first-round draft pick out of Ohio State, Haskins was killed in the early morning hours of April 9 after attempting to cross lanes of oncoming traffic on Interstate 595, according to authorities. His wife, Kalabrya Haskins, said in a previously-released 911 call that he had pulled over on the side of the road and walked to find gas.

According to the investigation report released by the medical examiner’s office Monday, the driver of the dump truck, who is not identified, said he was driving in the darkness when “all the sudden a male appeared standing in his travel lane.” Haskins was also “partially contacted” by a second vehicle as it attempted to swerve around him, according to authorities.
