The suspected drunken driver accused of killing two people, including Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, on Sunday morning has been living in the United States without documentation, Indiana State Police announced Monday.
Manuel Orrego-Savala, who was going by the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales, was arrested Sunday after allegedly striking and killing Jackson and ride-sharing operator Jeffrey Monroe, who were out of their vehicles on Interstate 70 in Indianapolis when Orrego-Savala allegedly veered his truck onto the shoulder.
Orrego-Savala is a 37-year-old citizen of Guatemala, police said in a release, who previously had been deported in 2007 and 2009. He is being held in the Marion County Jail.
Police say Orrego-Savala was driving without a license and intoxicated. He was arrested after trying to flee the scene on foot.
Jackson was a 26-year-old, third-year NFL pro who spent this past season on injured reserve. Police believe he had gotten sick and pulled over his car, and 54-year-old Monroe was checking how he was when they were killed.
