Dwayne Haskins Jr., a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who was formerly drafted by the Washington Commanders has died, according to authorities.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say Haskins was hit and killed along a Broward County highway in south Florida around 6:37 a.m. Saturday. Investigators say Haskins was trying to cross the westbound lanes of that highway for unknown reasons, when he was hit by an oncoming dump truck. Haskins was pronounced dead at the scene.

ESPN’s senior NFL insider, Adam Schefter, first reported that Haskins had passed away Saturday morning, and The Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Commanders later confirmed the news. 

Schefter reports that Haskins was in South Florida training with other Steelers players.

Dwayne Haskins was a standout quarterback at Ohio State University, whose talents led him to being drafted by the Washington Commanders in the first round of the 2019 draft.

He spent two years with the franchise, before signing with the Pittsburg Steelers in 2021.

Before his time in the national spotlight, Haskins attended high school at the Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland. He graduated from the school in 2016.
