The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Haskins was headed to the airport when the accident happened. He was walking on I-595 westbound for unknown reasons, tried to cross lanes with oncoming traffic and was struck, Florida Highway Patrol reported. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

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

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kalabrya, and his entire family during this difficult time.”

Haskins was drafted at No. 15 by the Washington Commanders (nee Redskins) in the 2019 draft. He started seven games as a rookie, but failed to live up to his lofty draft status. He then was released and signed with Pittsburgh.
