In a late night Sunday tweet, former Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark tweeted according to his sources, there will soon be a press release announcing a civil lawsuit regarding Dwayne Haskins’ death, who was killed one year ago today.
Here’s what Clark tweeted a short time ago.
In a follow-up tweet, Clark says “evidence may indicate that Dwayne Haskins was somehow targeted.” He doesn’t expand on the details of what that could mean.
Obviously, details here are extremely vague. A press release and/or lawsuit should provide more detail about these claims. It’s unclear exactly when that press release could be made public but perhaps it’ll happen sometime tomorrow. As of this writing, Clark is the only person to make this claim but his tweet indicates he has multiple sources telling him this information.
On April 9th, 2022, Haskins was struck by a dump truck as he was attempting to cross a highway after running out of gas. He was in Florida and headed back home after training with Steelers’ teammates, including QB Mitch Trubisky. Haskins was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges were filed and his death was ruled an accident. According to a toxicology report, Haskins had a blood alcohol level between .20 and .24, well above the legal limit.
We’ll update this information if a press release is issued or a civil suit is filed.
