On the morning of Saturday, April 9, Haskins was struck by a dump truck near Fort Lauderdale, Florida while attempting to cross Interstate 595’s westbound lanes of oncoming traffic on foot.
USA TODAY also obtained an accompanying investigation into Haskins’ death:
According to the investigation report released by the medical examiner’s office Monday, the driver of the dump truck, who is not identified, said he was driving in the darkness when “all the sudden a male appeared standing in his travel lane.” Haskins was also “partially contacted” by a second vehicle as it attempted to swerve around him, according to authorities.
Haskins was in Florida to do some offseason training with Steelers teammates. Per the USA TODAY article, the group went to dinner Friday night and then Haskins went to a club with a person described as a “friend/cousin”:
“They drank heavily and at some point, they got into a fight, separating,” the report states.
The Florida Highway Patrol determined that Haskins was traveling with a female passenger on April 9 before exiting on foot to find a gas station, according to the medical examiner’s investigation report. The woman was in the car when officers found it following the accident but she is not identified in the report.
Haskins’ toxicology report also notes that ketamine was detected in his urine at the time of death, though no drugs were detected in his blood.
Over the past few weeks, Ohio State, the NFL and many former teammates of Haskins have paid tribute to the former Buckeye standout who was a first-round draft pick in 2019.
