Steelers’ Dwayne Haskins dies after being hit by dump truck in South Florida 

Dwayne Haskins, an NFL quarterback whose enticing talent and career made him a first-round draft pick, died Saturday morning after being struck by a truck in South Florida. He was 24. 

Haskins was attempting to cross on foot the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 in Broward County against oncoming traffic when he was struck by a dump truck 

The accident was reported at 6:37 a.m. Saturday, and Haskins was pronounced dead on the scene 

A traffic homicide investigation remains open, according to the spokeswoman. 

Haskins, drafted by Washington in 2019 and signed by Pittsburgh two years later, had been training in Boca Raton, Fla., ahead of organized team activities with the Steelers. 

Social media posts published as recently as Friday evening showed him on a field alongside teammates Mitchell Trubisky, Najee Harris, and Chase Claypool. 

“I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins,” Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin said in a statement Saturday. 

He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community.  

Dwayne was a great teammate, but even more so a tremendous friend to so many. I am truly heartbroken.”
