Dwayne Haskins, a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, died after being hit by a dump truck early Saturday morning in Florida.

Haskins was walking on I-595 in Broward County "for unknown reasons," Lt. Indiana Miranda of the Florida Highway Patrol told NPR in an email.

Haskins was hit by the truck as he tried to cross westbound lanes, Miranda said. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The fatal crash, which is an active traffic homicide investigation, was reported at 6:37 a.m., Miranda said.

In a statement, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he was shock by this news "at a loss for words."

Before joining the Steelers, Haskins had a short stint with the Washington team now known as the Commanders.
