Man charged in drunken-driving crash that killed Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson

Man charged in drunken-driving crash that killed Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson

Orrego-Savala attempted to flee the scene of the accident on foot, but he was immediately apprehended by Indiana State Police and is now being held in county jail. He had been deported in 2007 and 2009 and was living in the US illegally, according to investigators. He was arrested shortly after the fatal crash.

Jackson and the driver of his ride-share auto were killed after a black Ford F-150 pickup driven by a 37-year-old man struck both of them as they were standing on the side of a highway by their stopped vehicle. He also faces federal changes of illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien, federal court records show. He faces up to 10 years in prison on the immigration charge, which the US attorney's office said would be handled after any state charges are resolved. "I don't know why I am here", he was quoted as saying by WIBC.

Police say Orrego-Savala had a blood-alcohol level that was almost three times the legal limit. The sheriff's office did not report him to ICE at that time because they were not legally required to do so for that offense, according to a news release.

"I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Indianapolis [Colts] linebacker Edwin Jackson", Vice President Mike Pence tweeted Monday night.

Trump's tweet also noted the need for tighter border security to limit illegal immigration. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies.

Trump has repeatedly tied immigrants to crime in seeking stricter immigration measures such as a border wall between the United States and Mexico.




Trump's tweets did not mention Monroe. "The family is in shock, as you can imagine". "This obviously happened so unexpectedly", Atlanta attorney Daniel Meachum said.

Federal immigration officials declined to comment Tuesday beyond noting in a statement that Orrego-Savala had a 2005 drunken driving conviction in Redwood City and numerous misdemeanor arrests and convictions in California and Indiana.

Investigators say they believe Orrego-Savala was intoxicated.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala, leaves a court hearing Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, in Indianapolis. Federal prosecutors spell his name as Orrego-Zavala, but the federal criminal compliant lists "Orrego-Savala" as among his aliases.

Jackson's friend Chad Bouchez said he would not want his death to be politicized. I think the people making it partisan are the democrats frankly, because they mostly want to ignore the reality that you can not have a sovereign nation without a secure border.

Mears says investigators want to compare the DNA to samples taken from inside the pickup truck that hit and killed the two victims along Interstate 70. He questioned whether his client could get a fair trial given the local publicity about the case and his immigration issues. "That's what makes this not a drunk driving case, but an immigration case".
