A lawsuit was filed Monday regarding the death of former NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The lawsuit claimed that Haskins was “targeted and drugged” before his death on April 9, 2022, and claimed Haskin’s death was connected to “blackmail and robbery conspiracy.” Attorney Rick Ellsey filed the lawsuit on behalf of Haskin’s family.
The lawsuit was filed last month in Broward County, Florida. Fourteen defendants were listed in the lawsuit including the dump truck driver that killed Haskins on Interstate 595. Haskins was 24 years old and training in Florida for the 2022 NFL season.
Additionally, the lawsuit claimed the driver performed “negligent acts.” The truck driver was driving in a highly visible highway. Other drivers stopped as Haskins walked across the highway.
Ellsey said the truck driver was driving over the speed limit and carrying excessive cargo.
Haskins owned an expensive watch and was not wearing it when he died. Ellsey said, “His highly expensive watch was stolen from him shortly before his death.”
Haskins was legally drunk when he was killed. Toxicology reports discovered that Haskins’ blood-alcohol levels were .20 and .24. Florida’s legal alcohol limit is .08.
Haskins’ wife Kalabrya Haskins is the plaintiff in the lawsuit according to ESPN. As of April 10, no charges have been filed.
Haskins’ death shocked the NFL community. NFL players and other athletes shared their condolences.
