    Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson Killed By Drunk Driver

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed early Sunday morning after being hit by a suspected drunken driver along the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis, according to the Indiana State Police Department.

    Jackson and another person, Jeffery Monroe of Avon, were stopped along the side of I-70 when Monroe, who was believed to be a ride-sharing operator driving Jackson, got out of the car to help Jackson, who was sick. The driver of a Ford F-150 drove onto the emergency shoulder and hit the rear of the car, striking both Jackson and Monroe, with one of the bodies landing in the center lane of I-70, according to a release from the Indiana State Police.

    State trooper Ty Mays, who was in the area, reported to the scene after seeing the accident on the side of the road. In the process of slowing down, he hit the body of the victim who was in the center lane.

    Monroe and Jackson were pronounced dead at the scene by the Marion County Coroner's Office. Monroe was 54; Jackson was 26.

    Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, of Indianapolis, was arrested after trying to flee the scene on foot, according to the Indiana State Police. Gonsales was driving without a license and was believed to be intoxicated, according to police.

    "We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson's passing," the Colts said in a statement. "Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization. We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality. He was well-respected among all with whom he crossed paths, and he will be greatly missed in our locker room and throughout our entire organization. We also understand that another person lost his life in the accident, only adding to our sorrow on this day. We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time."

    My advice to you is not get on the shoulder of the interstate at 4:00 am. This could have happened even with a sober driver. I have seen many people die on the shoulder of the interstate.

    I would like to also see MUCH harsher penalties for people that get caught driving without a license.

    Agreed, never, ever, stop a car off an interstate, I don't care if you drive on your rim, or 4 people barf in your car. Unless the car can't move. See too many of these stories.

    Sad thing is nobody here sees that this piece of shit is the real problem. Everyone blaming the driver for pulling over in the wrong place. Split second decision for some guy that can’t hold his liquor.

    sucks that both guys were killed and the illegal fukk is the true problem here

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The suspected drunk driver accused of killing two people, including Colts player Edwin Jackson, is an undocumented immigrant and has previously been deported two times, once in 2007 and again in 2009, according to Indiana State Police.

    Detectives have determined the driver of the Ford F-150 was using the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales. They say his given name is Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, and he is a citizen of Guatemala by birth.

    Police believe Orrego-Savala was intoxicated and was driving without a license. He was transported to the Marion County Jail. Court documents show a breath test was administered at the scene, and Orrego-Savala tested at 0.239 percent blood-alcohol content (BAC). This is about three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

    State police investigators are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and they have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala.

    “He used an alias, but one that he has used enough to leave a paper trail with that alias,” said ISP Sgt. John Perrine.

    Court records show the same suspect, again using the name Gonsales, was charged with driving without a license last year in Boone county.

    Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN04) issued this statement:

    "The loss of life at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals should make all Hoosiers sad and ultimately angry. We must do more to get these dangerous 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."

    Faith in Indiana (formerly IndyCAN) issued this statement:

    "We are sending our heartfelt condolences to the family of Edwin Jackson. While his death is tragic and certainly untimely, our focus must be on ending drunk-driving, not making this a political issue. The tragedy here is that this young man lost his life due to the negligence of someone who decided to drive under the influence. It was a horrible decision and this decision could have been made by anyone, regardless of legal status. What we should not do is minimize the loss of life by politicizing the driver’s immigration status. Legal status is not the culprit here; drunk driving is. At this time, the only thing we should be focusing on is supporting and loving Mr. Jackson's family and all families impacted by such a tragic loss of life."

    The second I saw the name Alex Cabrera Gonsales followed by him fleeing the scene I didn't need anyone to tell me he was an illegal. Liberals will probably fight for this guy, they don't want to lose a voter.

    Does it matter? Build the wall and deport them all!!!! Don't let them comeback time and time again to commit murder.. Too easy...

    If we had secure borders and STRICT deportation laws this football player would still be alive.. Plain and simple..

    I think if you are deported once and then caught again you should get 1 year in prison..
