LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- President Donald Trump expressed his thoughts on social media about Edwin Jackson, the Indianapolis Colts linebacker who died early Sunday morning, after he and another man were hit by a suspected drunk driver authorities say was in the U.S. illegally.

On Tuesday morning, President Trump posted the following on his Twitter account:

Indiana State Police say the other man killed in the accident was 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, of Avon, Indiana. Officials say both men died when they were hit by a suspected drunk driver on I-70 in Indianapolis.

Police say the man suspected of hitting the pair, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, was in the country illegally. According to police, Orrego-Savala had previously been deported twice in 2007 and again in 2009. Officials say he was using the alias Alex Cabrera Gonsales and he is a citizen of Guatemala.

Indiana State Police are working with U.S. Federal Immigration Officials and have placed a hold on Orrego-Savala. He is being held at the Marion County Jail. Police say criminal charges are pending.
