Autopsy reveals Dwayne Haskins was legally drunk with drugs in system at death
Former NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins was legally drunk and had drugs in his system when he was fatally struck by a dump truck on a Florida highway on April 9, according to a Monday autopsy report.
Haskins, who was playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers at the time of his death, was revealed to have a blood alcohol content of 0.20 when he died, according to a report citing the autopsy.
That level is roughly 2.5 times the legal limit for Florida drivers, the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The quarterback was on foot and trying to cross Interstate 595 when he was struck by the dump truck at about 6:37 a.m., Florida Highway Patrol said.
