Haskins, then a backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, died on April 9, 2022, when he was struck by a truck while walking on a highway after his car ran out of gas. A toxicology report determined him to have a blood alcohol content between .20 and .24 when he died.
According to a lawsuit filed about the incident, allegations claim that Haskins was drugged and robbed by a group that contained one man and three women. The events allegedly unfolded at a Boca Raton hotel, an upscale golf driving range, a bar, and a nightclub.
It further claimed that the dump truck that struck him was speeding, operating carelessly, and violating weight limit regulations. It also claims the rental truck driven by Haskins had a defect that led to it running out of gas.
Here’s how fans reacted:
The lawsuit named over a dozen defendants in the death of the former NFL quarterback.
The lawsuit further accuses the state of neglecting to implement lower speed limit signs in a construction zone, which may have led to the fatal crash.
According to ESPN, the family of Haskins has agreed to “partial settlements” with the driver, the owner, and the broker of the dump truck.
Haskins starred at Ohio State before getting drafted in the first round. He died at age 24.
