Over a month ago, we learned of the tragic news that former Ohio State standout and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins had passed away after getting hit by a dump truck on a major Florida highway.
Details about what went down that early April morning have been few and far between, but investigators have unveiled some new details from the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office.
According to TMZ Sports, a rep for the Steelers told investigators that Haskins had been training with teammates in the Miami area, and then went to a club later that evening.
Haskins had allegedly “drank heavily,” and then got into a fight.
It was reported that there was a “female companion” in the vehicle, who said that Haskins left on foot to get gas, but it remains unclear who the woman is in this situation.
However according to the autopsy report, two of Haskins’ blood samples had tested positive for alcohol, with one revealing a .20 BAC, and another at .24.
The report also stated that Haskins’ urine samples tested positive for ketamine and norketamine.
Here’s a look at the scene:
