What should be a homegoing celebration and time for reflection is turning into a controversy that Dwayne Haskins would’ve never wanted.
The parents of Pittsburgh Steelers and former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins say they will not attend his funeral services on set for Friday. It has everything to do with them never speaking to or ever seeing his wife in person.
“We have never met or spoken to the wife, and we didn’t want our son’s funeral service to be the place we met her for the first time,” says Dwayne Sr. and Tamara Haskins in a statement.
Haskins was tragically killed on April 9th when he attempted to cross an interstate and was hit by a dump truck. The Florida Highway Patrol said in a crash incident report that Haskins was also struck by a second vehicle.
A 911 call later revealed that Haskins’ wife called cops from Pittsburgh to inform them he had run out of gas and was walking to get assistance. After several calls went unanswered, she called 911 and was told there was an incident on the same highway he was located at.
