FHP Report: Dwayne Haskins ‘Improperly in Roadway’ When Killed



Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was “improperly in the roadway” when he was struck and killed on Interstate 595 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on April 9, according to an accident report from the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) completed on Tuesday.

According to the report, Haskins was crossing the east-west I-595 in a southernly direction when he was struck in the center lane of westbound side of the the six-line highway by a dump truck.

The impact sent Haskins into the left lane, where he was again clipped by the right side of a second vehicle. The drivers of both vehicles cooperated with police, and neither suffered injuries. A witness said a third vehicle was possibly involved in the incident, but no further information was released on that vehicle.

Haskins was returning from getting gas for his stranded vehicle when he was struck, his wife Kalabrya Haskins told a 911 operator in audio released on Wednesday.

“He had to go walk and get gas and he said he was returning to the car on the highway,” Kalabrya Haskins said. “We were on the phone. He said he was going to call me back after he finished putting the gas in. I kept calling and kept calling and he didn’t answer.”

Haskins was pronounced dead at the scene. The final traffic homicide investigation report is still pending, and is expected to take up to three months.
