On a recorded 911 call, a worried woman, identified as the Steelers’ quarterback Dwayne Haskins’s wife, Kalabrya, is evidently asking authorities if they've found her husband on the highway. Kalabrya stated that she’d received an email from him, claiming he was running low on gas and planned to cross I-595 to fill up a container at a nearby gas station.
The operator couldn't verify the incident but did say, “We do have an incident on the highway, but I can't confirm if that's your husband.”
Unfortunately, Haskins was later found dead after being struck by a dump truck while trying to cross the road on foot. He was just 24 at the time of his death.
Fox Sports 640 talk show host Andy Slater obtained the audio of the 911 calls. Another driver also mentioned in her 911 call that she’d witnessed the truck colliding with and killing Haskins. “There was a man hit in front of me,” the caller stated. “I was traveling on the road, and I saw a dump truck hit the man.” Slater stated that sources were told that the police had discovered an intoxicated woman inside Haskins’s vehicle, which had run out of fuel on the side of the highway.
When news of his death came out, Haskins's wife released an announcement thanking his family and friends. “My husband was more than a great football player. He had the smile of a rainbow that touched the diversity of so many,” the second part of her statement reads. “He will forever rest and remain in our hearts til the end of time. His eternal love will always reside with us, Ohio State, Washington Commanders and Steelers Nation for eternity! LOVE OF MY LIFE, FOREVER…REST IN THE BEAUTIFUL PEACE OF HEAVEN!”
