Dwayne Haskins Was Walking To Get Gas, According To 911 Call Made By His Wife

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was struck and killed by a dump truck earlier this month.

On Wednesday (April 20), audio of multiple 911 calls were released and reveal Dwayne Haskins’ wife Kalabrya telling the operator that her husband was stuck on the side of a busy interstate near Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was walking to get gas the morning he died after being struck by a dump truck on Interstate 595.

According to USA Today, Kalabrya told the operator that she was home in Pittsburgh and was trying to reach Dwyane on his phone, but that service was eventually cut off, which prompted her to make the 911 call so officials could check on him.

"He said he was going to call me back after he put gas in and I kept calling and kept calling," Kalabyra is heard telling the operator. "He wasn't answering. Eventually, after 10 minutes of calling the phone, eventually it cut off. It's not working now. I had his location. I just want somebody to go in the area and see if his car is there and if he's OK and if anything happened to him.

"That’s just not like him to not call me back and for his phone to go dead,” she added. “He was stranded by himself. He was walking, though."

At the time Kalabrya made the call, an incident was already reported in the area. During the call, she provides identifying information for the 24-year-old.

While her name is redacted from the call recording, Kalabrya refers to Haskins as her husband. She was also heard praying.

A traffic crash incident report was also released on Wednesday that indicated Haskins was struck by a second vehicle after the dump truck made initial contact.

On April 9, Dwyane Haskins was attempting to cross lanes on I-595, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He was in Florida training with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Haskins was a college football standout at Ohio State. Starting just one season for the Buckeyes back in 2018, he instantly became one of the best collegiate players, setting Big Ten records and finishing third in Heisman Trophy voting that same year.

During the 2019 NFL Draft, the then-Washington Football Team selected Haskins with the 15th overall pick, however he struggled through an up-and-down rookie season and was released during his second season in 2020.

A year later, the Steelers signed Haskins, however he didn’t play during the regular season. With the departure of veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, he was vying for the starting job this offseason.
