Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins was killed in South Florida when struck by a car

NFL football player Dwayne Haskins was killed this morning when struck by a vehicle in South Florida.

Haskins, who was originally signed by the Steelers in the 2021 offseason, didn’t see any playing time last season, but was signed by the team and hoping to compete for a starting spot.

Haskins was drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the No. 15 pick overall, by the Washington Commanders. He has completed 267 of 444 pass attempts for 2,804 yards (60.1%) with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in two seasons. In 2020 he completed 148 of 241 passes for 1,439 yards, five touchdowns, and seven interceptions, before being released by Washington.

Haskins was in South Florida practicing with his teammates in Boca Raton, Florida.

A dump truck struck Haskins and killed him. Haskins was trying to cross high 595 on foot when hit by the truck.
