According to the medical examiner report, Dwayne Haskins “had been drinking heavily” before being hit and killed on a South Florida road in April.

Two samples obtained for a toxicology study revealed that the 24-year-old NFL quarterback had a.20 and.24 blood alcohol concentration, according to the Miami Herald. In Florida, the legal driving blood alcohol content is .08.

Kalabrya Haskins, the wife of Haskins, stated in a 911 call made the morning of his death that he was walking on the road because he ran out of gas.

Despite the fact that he was hit by a large truck and killed, the crash did little to harm his reputation. According to reports, Dwayne Haskins attempted to flag vehicles down from the shoulder before being struck.

The medical examiner’s report said that a “female companion” who was in Haskins’ vehicle on the side of I-595 in Broward County stated that he was searching for gasoline. According to the report, she has no known connection with Haskins.

According to a report filed by the South Florida Police Department, a member of the Steelers’ organization stated that Haskins had been training in South Florida with teammates and after training went out to supper with his cousin, Joey. He then went to a club that was “possibly” in Miami.

The report reads: “They drank heavily and at some point, they got into a fight, separating.”

Haskins also had amphetamine, which is classified as a drug that might be used for recreational or medical purposes. The anesthetic ketamine is converted into norketamine, a by-product of ketamine. There was no information given regarding why the drugs were detected in his system.

“I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to every loving soul who has supported our family during this arduous time of loss. The overwhelming thoughts and prayers have been fuel for our emotional depletion. All of your blessings have been greatly valued and appreciated,” Kalabrya Haskins, his wife, stated in a press release on the Steelers’ website shortly after his death in April. They married in March 2021.

“The meaningful touches and impact Dwayne made as a husband, son, brother, teammate and friend is a timeless treasure imbrued in our hearts,” the statement continued. “I am truly grateful to everyone who has been by our side as we mourn his untimely passing. Our family implores for your continued prayers, yet continued respectful privacy as we painfully grieve.”

In 2019, Haskins was selected No. 15 overall by the Washington Commanders in the NFL Draft and played at Ohio State. He started 13 games for the team over the previous two seasons, including one with the Steelers last year as a backup.

In apologizing for a tweet that insensitively summarized Haskins’ professional career in announcing his death, ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned how Haskins was fitting in with the Pittsburgh organization as he tried to recover his career.

“Every day when he left practice, he would bump fists with head coach Mike Tomlin, [former] general manager Kevin Colbert and team president Art Rooney — which was his way of showing that he was grateful to be a member of the organization,” Schefter said.

In a statement on behalf of Haskins’ widow, Kalabrya, attorney Rick Ellsley said: “On behalf of Dwayne’s wife, his family, and his memory, and on behalf of the truth, we respectfully request and pray for privacy, for patience, and for the public to withhold any judgment during this period while the law enforcement authorities continue to investigate and conduct their important work.”
