The tragic deaths of Pittsburgh Steelers and former Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins have been revealed in more detail.
The 24-year-old athlete was hit by a dump truck and killed in a treacherous expansion of the I-595 on the Fort Lauderdale floor around 6:37 p.m. Saturday, April 9th.

“And what I’ve noticed is a Mac truck, or a big tractor-trailer, as well as another vehicle that started to go a little to the left,” he said. “I was in the left lane and then there was the right lane, and then I noticed there was a person walking down the street their way.”
Stanley told NBC6 that he “saw the man’s arm raised” when he appeared to be “floating down the street.”
“He’s about a quarter of a lane in the right lane, already on the highway, and I was already worried that someone was going to hit him at that very moment,” Stanley said.
