Dwayne Haskins

The investigation into Dwayne Haskins’ death last Saturday could reportedly take months, according to a report from UPI.

The Florida Highway Patrol launched an investigation into Haskins death that could take up to 90 days. There is a 90-day time frame for these type of investigations and that Haskins’s case will be treated similar. The work that goes into these investigations includes interviews, transcribing and evidence collection.

FHP Lt. Indiana Miranda said that investigators work multiple cases, which means that this case will take up quite some time. She also said that there will be no additional information about the case until the investigation is completed.

The report also states that a spokesperson at the Broward County medical examiner’s office said that they are still waiting for a toxicology report, which is a part of a separate investigation into the cause of Haskins’ death.

Haskins was killed when he was attempting to cross Interstate 595 near Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

“Mr. Haskins was walking on a limited access facility (highway/expressway) for unknown reasons. He was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 when there was oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, he collided with an oncoming dump truck,” the FHP said in a press release.

Many across the NFL and sports’ world have expressed their condolences to Haskins’ family, friends and teammates. He was only 24 years old.
