According to the University of California at Davis and other universities, someone with a Haskins weight of 230 pounds would need at least 10 drinks a few hours before death to reach that level.

Haskins was training in South Florida with some of his Steelers teammates. The report says Haskins went to dinner with teammates and then to a club with a friend or cousin, possibly in Miami. The two quarreled and parted.

Haskins spoke on the phone with his wife Calabria in Pittsburgh shortly before he was hit, and told her he had run out of gas.
