…That a Young NFL Quarterback Was Killed On a South Florida Highway?

Yes. Dwayne Haskins, 24, the backup Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and a former standout at Ohio State University, was attempting on foot to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 in Fort Lauderdale when he was hit by a dump truck on April 9, 2022. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been here training with teammates when it happened and his death sparked an outpouring of social media support from those who had worked with him and other NFL players. “He was one of the greatest QB’s in Ohio State history,” wrote his college coach, Urban Meyer, in a social media post, “but an even better son, teammate and friend.” Read a national news story here about the loss.
