Dwayne Haskins had more than twice the BAC limit prior to death, per report

New details emerged in the death of Dwayne Haskins on Monday after the medical examiner’s report showed that the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback had significant amount of alcohol in his blood at the time of the accident, according to the Miami Herald.

The toxicology report revealed he had two samples showing his blood at .20 and .24, which is more than double the legal blood alcohol content limit in Florida, which is .08.

Haskins also tested positive for ketamine and norktamin — drugs that can be used as a medical anesthetic but also as recreational drugs, but the report from the Medical Examiner’s Office did not specify why they may have been in his system.

No other drugs were found during his blood screening.

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident, in which Haskins left his vehicle and was struck by a dump truck near the median on I-595 in Broward County.

The Medical Examiner’s Office conducted its own investigative report and spoke to a Pittsburgh Steelers team official who said that the night prior Haskins had gone to dinner and then a “club, possibly in Miami” with a friend or cousin named “Joey.”

“They drank heavily and at some point, they got into a fight, separating,” the report said, per the Herald.

The Medical Examiner’s investigative report also showed that investigators found Haskins’ car with a “female companion” inside the vehicle who said he left the car to look for gas.

The nature of her relationship with Haskins is not known, but this also matches what Haskins’ wife said in a 911 call she made from Pittsburgh when she could not get in touch with her husband.

Haskins, a former first-round pick out of Ohio State, played for the Washington Commanders for two seasons before signing with the Steelers prior to the 2021 season.
