Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins died early Saturday morning after being struck by a dump truck.

The 24-year-old football player was walking on a South Florida highway when he was hit and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Authorities say Haskins appeared to cross the westbound lanes of Interstate 595 when there was oncoming traffic. 

A traffic homicide investigation has been opened.

“I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins,” said Mike Tomlin, Head Coach of the Steelers in a statement. “He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community. Dwayne was a great teammate, but even more so a tremendous friend to so many. I am truly heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kalabrya, and his entire family during this difficult time.”

Haskins was training in Florida with teammates. Prior to signing with Pittsburgh, Haskins spent two seasons with Washington.
