Family of Edwin Jackson releases statement, arrangements set”

The suspected drunken driver accused of hitting and killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson has been living in the country illegally and did not have a driver's license, the Indiana State Police announced Monday.

Indiana State Police say early Sunday morning, Orrego-Savala crashed a pickup truck into two men stopped on in the emergency shoulder on I-70.

Indiana State Police identified the driver of an F-150 truck in the incident as Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, a Guatemalan citizen in the USA illegally who had been deported in 2007 and 2009.

"We must do more to get these unsafe illegal immigrant criminals off of our streets, and guarantee this never happens again by building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and stopping illegal immigration once and for all", Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita said in a statement.

He remained jailed Tuesday but has not been formally charged in the crash. Jackson, 26, was one of two men killed when a suspected drunken driver struck them as they stood outside their auto along a highway in Indianapolis.

Linebacker Jackson, 26, was signed by the Colts in January 2016 and played parts of one season in the league.

The affidavit said he has had prior run-ins with law enforcement for driving without a valid license and that he was walking away from the crash scene when an IN state trooper detained him. Another court hearing was scheduled for Wednesday. He was convicted of driving under the influence in Redwood City, Calif., in 2005, Alberico said.

"The defendant in this case allegedly re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men early Sunday morning", said Josh J. Minkler, a U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Indiana.

A man listed as Alex Cabrera Gonsales - the alias officials say Orrego-Savala used - was arrested in March 2017 in Whitestown, Indiana, after a driving infraction, according to a Whitestown Police report. The two more serious counts each carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Just learned about the passing of one of my favorite teammates.

Both men were standing outside the auto when a black Ford F-150 pickup truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck them.

In a second tweet, the president said his "prayers and best wishes are with the family of Edwin Jackson, a wonderful young man whose life was so senselessly taken".

Investigators said Orrego-Zavala, who was in the country illegally, left the scene.

Jackson's friend Chad Bouchez said he would not want his death to be politicized. Jackson and Monroe were both pronounced dead early Sunday morning in a tragedy that has shaken the entire Colts family.

Orrego-Savala remains jailed in Indianapolis.
