Edwin Jackson

Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was one of 2 men killed by a drunk driver on Sunday morning on the shoulder of an Indianapolis highway. Jackson reportedly asked Monroe to pull over onto the shoulder on Interstate 70 because he was getting sick. Both men were hit and killed when Monroe got out of the car to assist Jackson.

Deadspin.com reports that Jackson, 26, and his driver Jeffrey Monroe were killed when Manuel Orrego-Savala lost control of his car and veered off the road, killing Jackson who was standing on the shoulder.

Orrego-Savala, a 37-year-old illegal immigrant from Guatemala, attempted to flee the scene on foot. He was arrested and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence and operating a vehicle without a valid driver's license.

The Colts issued a statement on Monday, which reads in part:

“We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization. We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality... We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time.”

    Trump? Is that you?

  • ShelbyMoore

    Damn shame illegal or not, he needs to pay with more than 5 years in jail and being deported. He willfully drank all that alcohol and willfully went behind the wheel, so he needs to pay with at least 35 years then deportation.

  • TMW

    Why does the fact that the driver was an illegal immigrant matter? Does that make this any more sad and horrific? American citizens drive drunk and kill people too.

  • Rayne

    You done did it now buddy!

  • Pitty Patty

    This is right up Trump's alley. But he won't care because the three colors cancel each other out.

    RIP to men that were killed. That's a horrible way to go.

  • Bonsai

    This is so sad. Why couldn't he just vomit inside the car. RIP.

  • MsPam

    Because it prove what Trump is saying about illegal immigrants if Orrego was in his rightful place ,Edwin Jackson would still be alive! 1+1=2

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Poor linebacker poor Uber driver RIP

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL.
    It was an accident but troll harder.

  • Ni Ni

    Vomit in the car ?. Had to be their time for something so odd to happen like that. RIP

  • TMW

    Says the President with FIRST AND THIRD wives who weren’t even born here and barely speak English. He’a as foreign loving as they come. What is Melania’s rightful place, and by extension, Barron’s and the other Trump kids? Where would any of us be if we were in our “rightful place?” Because the only people native to America are on reservations. 1-1=0

    That's not true, if you believe in the god you say you do then everyone was where they were supposed to be at that time.

    sad and senseless #ripvictims

  • hottlanta

    White teacher assaults students for not standing for flag last week and Sandy says nothing. I wonder what color are those kids that shot up those schools last month. Nothing. Illegal brown person does something and their status/race/nationally is mentioned. At least all of those white people who destroyed Philly last night was legal.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    If you throw up in an Uber or lyft vehicle it could cost you at minimum $250. I had a woman throw up in my new car and lyft immediately sent me $250 and when I sent my receipts in for the clean they reimbursed that and the person who threw up pays for it all ($250 and cleaning) through the credit card. It is compensation for earnings lost because you can't drive again until your car is cleaned.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But why are the GOP trying to pass an anti-immigrant law named after a blonde white woman and not the victims of MS-13 whose parents were showed off at the STOU last Tuesday?

    Whites have more value than people of color maybe?

  • Shay

    So the media is not reporting the fans of super bowl 52 "thugs"? Us brown people would have been labeled, booked and the president would have tweeted 2 times thus far! smh...

  • hottlanta

    Pimp my wife and pimp crimes against black people and front as if I am going to actually do something. If the GOP cared so much about crime they would have those 13 kids on stage who was terrorized by their own parents for years.

  • hottlanta

    He flexing those twitter fingers now. He got a rally in Ohio about his fake $1000 before tax plan today and he is gonna let it rip.

  • xenaD

    Ain’t no 250... I paid 40 once and the second time the Uber driver let me clean it up and charged me 0.

  • hottlanta

    I am waiting on someone to ask him why did his family first check the immigration box as German. Then came to the US and checked the immigration box as Swedish. Show us your birth certificate.

  • ALLMINE?

    1+1=2 ???????

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    And here come the ingnant trump supporters

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Unless you have a plastic bag to vomit into, I cant imagine any Uber driver allowing you to just throw up in their car. I know I wouldn't. I guess it just would just make sense to just pull over to a safe spot and have you vomit outside.
    And the odds of some drunk driver losing control and killing you in that situation are so miniscule, it's just crazy that something like this would happen. RIP to alll.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Hopefully this dude gets deported. I'm not a Trump fan by any means, but some things are just common sense to me. If you're here illegally and you commit a crime, you should serve jail time... and then get deported.
    I dont see why some cities allow illegals to serve their time and then release them back to the public afterward.

  • pure_rachet

    Damn how’d you do that twice?? Lol

  • MsPam

    Jehovah had nothing to do with that, it was man’s fault! Man being disobedience, no Jehovah god didn’t need another angel. I’m sick of that lie too!

  • Bonsai

    Oh wow ... I had no idea ... thank you for that info.

  • pure_rachet

    Can’t you just make another email and use a different card? Idk I don’t Uber

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Yeap, they stole the police horses and everything...

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Drankin that cheap shht LOLOL I keep telling yall to leave those mixed drinks alone!

  • hottlanta

    I thought they stole an ostrich. Yep that white to steal the horses.

  • Phillybruh

    They know the info in your phone.

  • Phillybruh

    Well somebodies god called them home.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Let them serve their time in their own rotten country, why should we have to pay for it!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well we have to imprison him here to make sure they go through some kind of punishment, otherwise he'll just walk away Scot-free.
    If an illegal murders somebody here, for example, you dont just put him on a plane and deport him, since the country he's from has no obligatiion to put him in prison there.

  • Nathan Hastings

    He is a dreamer.

  • xenaD

    LoL.. my daughter and I get car sick! The first time I was in the hood and there was brown liquor involved! Lol

  • TheOwley

    Hey, these illegals kill too but California is their sanctuary state so they should all move to California. They kill white women and black men. Bottom line, he is a criminal and should have never been given a driver's license let alone be here illegally. But some will deflect to Trump and not acknowledge we've got a real problem with illegal immigration.

  • xenaD

    It was a good day tho! Paid for it the next 3 days but I had so much fun

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No, no we can't show white pathology to the entire world because that only happens in the cultures of POC./s

  • Ryan

    Sad. TBH I don't care much about dreamers cause they don't care about us, but it does seem like xenophobic baiting to bring up a crime by an illegal when probably dozens of white and black folks do the same thing everyday.

  • Kemi

    RIP Edwin Jackson!! Condolences to his family and friends!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree and I hate to state the obvious but this man does not qualify for the DREAM ACT, he is not under 16, I read that he has a criminal history, and he's basically just an illegal immigrant who slipped through the cracks and ended up killing two people sadly. DREAMERS are children who were brought to the country by their parents, not on their own accord. Even still their are legal standards that must be met to qualify as a DREAMER. This phrase is getting thrown around to randomly. Not all immigrants are criminal pieces of shat. Their are a GOOD amount of American born cretins I wish we could expel, or catapult to another planet, Trump being one of them.

  • TMW

    This!!!

  • Music

    He was arrested and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence and operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license.

    What about being charged with MURDER!

  • Ryan

    I could tell that he's not under 16. Mentioning the dreamers was just an example.

  • ???TheRider???

    I was just about to comment the same thing! Uber paid my hubby $50 for the cleaning of the back seat. If they paid $250 the car must have been destroyed!

  • Monique B

    THANK YOU!! NYC NEWS HAVEN'T REPORT THIS YET! ILLEGAL KILLS AN AMERICAN NFL PLAYER!!

  • Monique B

    Let's start killing them, and see what happen. Dems will start crying over there votes

  • Monique B

    Hopefully they will kill him in jail

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Wait for it - wait for it - Here comes Trump's tweet about illegals.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    They don't charge for murder right away because it has to be investigated - thoroughly. This is SOP with the police & detectives. They can only charge the obvious - no license, drunk. Then when they recreate the scene and talk to witnesses they can make a murder charge.

  • TheOwley

    Not kill, but Latinos are the largest minority in the US and democrats want more of them by any means possible.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    We shouldn't even waste the tax payers money on him in jail. Just get him out of the country as quickly as you can

  • xenaD

    scam artists!

  • Nina Ross

    Never ever stop on the side of the freeway, this happens everyday! So, so dangerous...

  • Anunnaki

    There was another life taken along with the football player, he must not make enuff money to considered worthy of his death, society ????

  • Monique B

    I wish Bernie would run in 2020

  • Soon2BWife

    Right! Just do it in the car, have it drep cleaned. At least you live another day. RIP

  • TheOwley

    So he can recreate a Venezuelan paradise. No gracias.

  • Elevated Soul

    So now you fools are brown now?

    You sitting up here talking about the media aka Fake News as if they suddenly got credibility now. Your media always ignore what you SJW's you.......President Trump got you fools thinking about him 24/7.

  • Jygalo

    Naw it’s a football player he doesn’t like them. Not good enough for his propaganda machine of gullible idiots

  • Jygalo

    They work they pay taxes and they don’t get benefits or social security. What’s your issue?

    And contrary to idiot beliefs they DO NOT VOTE. Not any government benefits smdh

  • Jygalo

    Actually they’re going to be the majority soon.

  • dontgetblocked

    Another illegal. Another crime. I have to be honest, there are a lot of undocumented black men. We all know that one relative who doesn't have a paper trail....no driver's license, utility bills, no lease or mortgage. Everything is in one of his baby mama's name. He's the real life Ghost from Power. We all know one....

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Boy if Trump don't hurry and build that phuckin wall. As far back as I can remember, the illegals drive around with no insurance. They cause a wreck and then always want to take off. This is such a horrible chain of events and ending to young lives. WOW.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    U schittin' me. Don't throw up in my car. None of us could predict this would be the outcome, no doubt. We all do this when a senseless act ends in death; shoulda, coulda, woulda. But no, aint no throwing up in my car cuz guess what? You wouldn't throw up in your own car. One would think pulling over on the side of the road would be enough, not deadly.

  • Monique B

    LMAO

  • TheOwley

    Yes. But not soon and not just here in the US. White people hate themselves so much they are not reproducing in Europe, Scandinavian countries are considering paying the women to baby up, they are aborting like there is no tomorrow (crap black women and Latinas never did much but now right there with that demographic). Italians will be in the minority in a few years in their own country.

  • TheOwley

    My issue? Mainly ignorant people like yourself that don't know the real issues.

  • ?Royalty?

    I had a Guatemalan guy hit my mom's parked car years ago. He hit the car so hard it hopped the curb and flew into the side of a house!

    This was when we lived in the Spanish ghetto. My Dominican and Puerto Rican neighbors weren't havin' it?? Half of them came banging on my door, while the other half apprehended the guy as he was attempting to flee the scene.

  • Patricia

    unless your car breaks down, never stop on the side of the freeway. always race to nearest exit instead. its extremely dangerous to be parked on side of freeway because drunk drivers (and half-asleep drivers) are alarmed from their drunken/dazed stupor by tail lights or flashing hazards and easily lose control. it happens all the time.

  • Jamal Warner

    What does this have to do with this story? You turned this in to something to attack black men. Why?

  • Jussjess25

    Wait what???? ????? did you just say undocumented black men?? Im so done. You just reached far and wide to coon. Smh

  • MRiGOThim

    Why wasn't they on the median or right side of traffic...that's why cops go to the passenger side now @ least in Texas they do :/

  • gro$$

    upvote!

  • gro$$

    deported twice so he had been committing crimes before this horrible murder of a promising young athelete and his ride share driver!
    I get mad at the fact that illegals w children get WIC, AFDC, Section8, etc etc etc but a military family gets nothing while on deployment! And our black veterans cant get jobs like construction which are easy to leave and come back to ( for deployment) racist companies rather hire all latinos even if they cant read english!!
    People need to wake up!!

  • Mike Love

    Seriously f**k you

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Yes ma'am if you feel ill from partying request a pull over. Oh we can also charge you up to $60 bucks for leaving our seats dirty or leaving trash in the back. Ive seen drivers send in cleaning fee for cookie crumbs from kids and get $20 dollars from the passenger. If its wet outside and you leave mud or leave the seat wet and a picture can be taken of it.. you may be out of around $60 dollars...

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Now pick your dumb ass face up off the ground. Ive been doing this for a while sweetie and yes IN GEORGIA..you throw up im my car its $250 dollars mkay.. move on..

    Listen it was never that serious! Tf???!! Dude you’re very hostile, Get a grip

  • xenaD

    How many times did u reuse that picture, scammy???

  • FOR COMMENT

    the point is another life to an illegal. I cant believe are actually saying where he should of be standing----if this was your son/spouse or brother you wouldn't be asking that..The crazy thing is Mexico would have your head if you did half the stuff these illegals do here.

  • TOO REAL

    Which one do you think makes your president the happiest? They caught an illegal criminal immigrant or a black, kneeling football player is dead? JA

  • Quitedeliteful

    Let him serve time in prison then send his drunk arse back to Guatemala...

  • Yoni7

    Really? You're questioning WHERE they were standing and not the fact that a muthafukka was DRUNK DRIVING???

  • TheOwley

    Absolutely. People think this is a Trump issue so if they are anti-Trump, they don't care about the damages of illegal immigration, and specially in the black community. This issue ain't got nothing to do with Trump. The issue was there with Obama and will be there after Trump.

    Black folks don't realize how they are being slowly displaced and will ultimately become disenfranchised. It's like a frog basking in warm water and too cooked to jump out when the heat is turned up.

    I have nothing against immigrants. But legal immigration is the only way to go. Illegals are costing the taxpayer lots of money which is given to them in the form of freebies. Now a California town wants to give it's residents $500 either weekly or monthly, not sure, and no questions asked. Who is paying? It's crazy.

  • Jygalo

    If I’m what’s considered ignorant as compared to you then you would cease to exist

  • WutizstillHERE!

    You sooo dumb.. you don't think Uber will have a record of shit? They investigate all claims thats why it takes an hour or two to get paid they look up your records of incidents..If I used the same picture I would be in jail not trying to talk to your useless ass.. xena the princess dummy..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Nah never come at someone you don't know I go from zero to FUCK YOU

  • xenaD

    ? ??

  • xenaD

    Na. I’ve seen it happen. Ur very aggressive. N u charge mfs for leaving plastic bottles in your cab. Says a lot about ur character but... try to loosen up and have a good day

  • parisjok

    so so sorry but these men did not exercise cautious highway behavior at all. never ever do you do what these men did. ever

  • gro$$

    exactly they buy the bs thats spewed on tv and websites and dont wanna see the reality. 1 billion dollars was sent back from immigrants mostly illegal in this country to Mexico and such. Thats money that was earned not just working the fileds!!! when are we getting to keep 1 billion for our communities, our childrens schools our older generations???
    Never, people are gonna keep coming displacing blacks in the workforce and we keep letting it happen.

  • Maxima

    This drunken piece of trash needs to be deported immediately. As for folks blaming the victims, the football player guy got sick and the Uber driver came to his aid. Eyes should always be on the road because sometimes things happen beyond anyone's control and you have to drive defensively. But if you are drunk, well, then, you cannot do that, can you? This is the kind of shit that makes people anti-immigration. If you are in a country illegally, been previously deported and have no license or car insurance, wouldn't you be watchin' your ass? Some of these illegals are feel very entitled.

  • Disgustd

    Who's gonna build it? And is it to keep people OUT or keep people IN? That's how prisons are constructed.

  • Disgustd

    Somebody must be mad b/c those are black men the system can't find to lock up on trumped up charges.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Both, in and out. I honestly don't see American trying to escape or run to Mexico. IJS.
