Man charged in drunken-driving crash that killed NFLer Jackson

Colts' Edwin Jackson killed by driver illegally in US

Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, of Guatemala, is accused of driving while intoxicated and killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man in a vehicle crash Sunday in Indiana.

Investigators say the suspect, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, has twice been deported from the USA and was illegally living in the country at the time of Sunday's crash in Indianapolis.

"We must do more to get these risky 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", Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita said in a statement. He is being charged with two counts of causing death while driving intoxicated and of leaving the scene of an accident, according to the AP. Jeffrey Monroe, an Uber driver, and 26-year-old Edwin Jackson, who played for the Indianapolis Colts, died in the collision.

Jackson played 16 games with the Colts in 2016 but spent the previous year on injured reserve. "State police investigators are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and they have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala". He appeared in court Wednesday for an initial hearing. Indianapolis television station WRTV reported that Orrego-Savala told the judge through an interpreter: "I wasn't driving the vehicle".

Two years after he was deported, he returned to the United States illegally, and was deported again two months later in May 2009, with an order not to come back for 20 years, according to the complaint.

The judge set his bond at $200,000 after entering a not guilty plea on his behalf, and charged him with four felonies.

"In April, Attorney General (Jeff) Sessions directed all federal prosecutors to prioritize charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present", U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said in a statement.

Orrego-Savala will remain in custody while the local case is investigated by the Indiana State Police and the Marion County Prosecutor's Office. He was convicted of driving without a license a year ago in Boone County, Ind. under an alias, Boone Country Prosecutor Todd Meyer said in a news release.

On Tuesday morning, President Trump tweeted a condemnation of Orrego-Savala and sent his condolences to Jackson's family.

Jackson's friend Chad Bouchez said he would not want his death to be politicized. His other aliases include variations on the spelling of Orrego-Savala.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by the Marion County coroner's office.
