Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Apartmentback Pittsburgh Steelers Dwayne Haskins was drunk and taking drugs before he was fatally hit by a dump truck as he was walking on a Florida interstate highway last month, according to an autopsy report released Monday.

Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office said Haskins’ blood alcohol content was 0.20 when he was fatally beaten on Interstate 595 near Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport shortly before dawn on April 9th. This is 2.5 times the legal limit for driving in the state of 0.08.

The video above is taken from a preliminary report dated April 11, 2022.

According to the University of California, Davis and other universities, a person weighing Haskins, 230 pounds (104 pounds), would need at least 10 drinks a few hours before death to reach that level. His system also contained a strong analgesic ketamine and its metabolite norketamine. The drug can be prescribed by a doctor, but can also be abused for recreational purposes. The report does not say why the former Ohio State star had this in his system.

The report said investigators found Haskins’ car without gas near the place where he was shot down. The woman he was with, investigators said, 24-year-old Haskins drove for fuel. Witnesses say he was trying to swing away from cars and was standing in the center lane when he was hit by a truck and then an SUV. The report said he died from the blunt force injury. No charges have been filed.

Steelers told investigators that Haskins had no mental health problems and never threatened to commit suicide. They said he sometimes drank heavily and sometimes used marijuana, but it was not known that he used other recreational drugs. A forensic expert recognized the death as an accident.

Haskins was training in South Florida with some of his Steelers teammates. The report says Haskins went to dinner with teammates and then to a club with a friend or cousin, possibly in Miami. The two quarreled and parted.

Haskins spoke on the phone with his wife Calabria in Pittsburgh shortly before he was hit, and told her he had run out of gas. She told the 911 dispatcher what she was upset about when he didn’t call back and answer her calls. The recording could be heard of her praying after the dispatcher put her on hold to find out if anything had been reported. The dispatcher then told her to stay near the phone and someone would contact her.

Haskins starred in Ohio in 2018, setting several records at the school and was named MVP in both the Big Ten Championship game and Buckeyes ’Rose Bowl victory over the Washington Huskies.

Haskins, selected by Washington in the NFL Draft in the first round of 2019, was released by the team after scoring 3-10 in two seasons. He was signed by Pittsburgh as QB on development, but last season he did not appear in the game.
