Colts LB Edwin Jackson Hit By A Suspected Drunk Driver Who Was Driving Without A License

Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was hit by a suspected drunk driver and killed just before 4 am Sunday morning. 

The 26 year old was one of two men struck and killed while standing on the shoulder of the highway, Indy Star:

"One of the people struck was thrown into the center lane of I-70," Sgt. John Perrine said in a statement. "Shortly after the crash, and before any 911 calls were received, Trooper Ty Mays was driving through the area and noticed a vehicle in front of him make an evasive maneuver to the left."

Perrine said Mays then spotted the crash along the right side of the road and activated his emergency lights.

"As he slowed to stop for the crash he struck the body of the victim in the center lane," Perrine said in a statement.

The driver of the pickup truck, identified as 37-year-old Alex Cabrera Gonsales of Indianapolis, tried to flee the scene on foot.

Tragic news for the Indianapolis Colts and the families of the two men who were killed.
