Kalabrya Haskins has released a statement following medical reports that her husband Dwayne Haskins had alcohol and drugs in his system at the time of death. According to the autopsy report released on Monday, Haskins was “legally drunk and had taken drugs before he was fatally struck by a dump truck while walking on a Florida interstate highway.”
TPS reports that;
The Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office said the Pittsburgh Steelers QB’s blood alcohol content was 0.20 when he was fatally struck. That’s 2.5 times the 0.08 legal limit for driving in the state.
Haskins had been on the phone with his wife, Kalabrya, back in Pittsburgh shortly before he was struck, telling her he had run out of gas.
His widow would soon release a statement through her attorney:
Kalabrya told a 911 dispatcher she was worried when he didn’t call back and wasn’t answering her calls. She could be heard praying on the recording after the dispatcher put her on hold to find out if anything had been reported.
A 2019 first-round NFL draft pick by Washington, Haskins was released by the team after going 3-10 over two seasons. He was signed by Pittsburgh as a developmental QB, but he didn’t appear in a game last season.
He was expected to fight for a starting position with the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger. Haskins’ death was ruled accidental. He was 24.
Do you really have to wonder if the public needs to know this information if the person has died? It could have been enough to just say that the death was accidental and that is it. Did we really need to know how drunk Haskins was or who was in the car with him? It just seems to me that once someone has passed away we simply need the bare minimum of information.
