Justin Strzelczyk was an American athlete,
NFL football player, Pittsburgh Steelers
offensive lineman (1990-2000) who played
in the 1995 Super Bowl.
Strzelczyk (pronounced STREL'-zihk) was
involved in a hit-and-run accident the
morning of his death. Police put out an
alert for his truck, but when troopers
caught up to him, he not only refused
to pull over, but proceeded to lead police
on a dramatic high-speed chase that
resulted in his death.
It was thought by many that he must
have been drunk or on drugs to have
acted as irrationally as he did, but
subsequent tests showed he did not
have alcohol or drugs in his system.
