Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, 26, and Jeffrey Monroe, 54, killed when struck by alleged hit-and-run driver Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, on Interstate 70 in Indianapolis, Indiana
The two victims were standing near their stopped vehicle when a black Ford F-150 pickup truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck the rear of the car and both victims.
The 6-foot, 234-pound Jackson attended Georgia Southern. He was signed by the Arizona Cardinals in May 2015 and released by the team about three months later. Jackson was signed to the Colts practice squad in December 2015 and then by the Colts to reserve/future contract in January 2016.
Prosecutors filed felony charges on Wednesday against an immigrant illegally living in the U.S. who is suspected in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver in Indiana.
Prosecutors say Manuel Orrego-Savala admitted he had been behind the wheel, but the defense claims the trooper asked if he “was the driver of the black truck without first reading and advising the defendant of his Miranda rights.” That could be a potential violation of the Fifth Amendment.
