Man charged in crash that killed Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson

Manuel Orrego-Savala

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.

Orrego-Savala remained jailed Wednesday in Indianapolis.

Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver were killed on February 4, 2018, by a motorist believed to be driving drunk.

The deaths of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver in IN were "completely preventable" had more stringent immigration laws and a wall for enforcing them had been in place, Rep. Todd Rokita said Wednesday. Court documents list his blood alcohol level at 0.19, which is more than double the state's legal limit (0.08), according to the AP.

IN police identified the suspect as Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan national.

Before the crash on Sunday morning, Monroe had pulled his 2018 Lincoln to the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis because Jackson had become ill, according to state police.

Orrego-Savala's only responses in court were answering through an interpreter as the judge explained the proceedings and charges.

The fatalities come about two months after a California jury acquitted a Mexican man in the fatal July 2015 shooting of a woman on a San Francisco pier - a death that touched off a fierce national immigration debate.

Police said Orrego-Savala was the driver of the F-150.

Orrego-Savala was deported in 2007 and 2009, and was again living illegally in the U.S.at the time of the crash, according to investigators.

Pick-up truck driver Manuel Orrego-Savala was allegedly drunk when he plowed his auto into Jackson and an Uber driver standing by the side of the road, killing both, before fleeing the scene on foot. They say he was walking away when they caught him. Jeffrey Monroe, 54, of Avon, Indiana, was the ride-share driver who also was killed in the crash around 4 a.m. Sunday.

Collectively, Orrego-Savala is facing well-over a decade in prison if he is convicted.

"It's just another tragedy marked up in this illegal immigration fight that we're having and it doesn't surprise me in the lease", said Mary Ann Mendoza. "We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!" he wrote.

"The family is in shock, as you can imagine". He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and in, said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico. They say Jackson and Monroe were struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by Orrego-Savala.
