INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana State Police say a man being held in a suspected drunken driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson has twice been deported from the U.S.
Sgt. John Perrine says 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala had been using an alias.
“We determined his real name was something different and that he is a citizen of Guatemala," Perrine says. "We also learned he has been deported from the United States twice -- once in 2007 and again in 2009 -- and he’s living here illegally.”
Orrego-Savala remained in the Marion County Jail on Monday.
Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe were standing outside their car along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis when they were hit and killed by a pickup truck being driven by Orrego-Savala.
Police say they believe Orrego-Savala was intoxicated and driving without a license. Police say they're working with prosecutors on potential criminal charges.
