Colts owner Jim Irsay will pay for the funerals of linebacker Edwin Jackson and Jackson’s Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, Mike Wells of ESPN reports.

Jackson and Monroe were killed after being hit by a drunk driver while standing on the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis early Sunday morning.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, who is suspected in the collision, has a 2005 conviction for driving under the influence in Redwood City, Califoria, according to the Indianapolis Star. Orrego-Savala, 37, had a blood-alcohol level of .239 percent, or nearly three times the legal limit, according to the newspaper.

    No mention of suspect being an illegal immigrant

    They guy IS illegal. Deported twice. No drivers license. Drunk.
    Man, this diversity is some great stuff!

  2. To think, that could have been Irsay. How many times has he driven intoxicated. Wake up call? Still, good of him to cover expenses. Shame a young man is dead. I can’t stand drunk drivers. Were it up to me every one of them would serve a mandatory 10 year minimum sentence. Losers!

  3. Why don’t you tell the entire story about how he is an illegal who has been deported twice? Not that it won’t make the story any less tragic but maybe this would have been prevented if we had any type of enforcement in our immigration system.

    Guess most of you prefer your drunk drivers to be American

    Yes! In fact that would be preferable. Since there wasn’t a legal US resident at that place, at that time, who was driving drunk, those two men would still be alive. That is definitely preferable to what actually happened!

  5. You guys making pseudo-racial/political comments are idiots… Do you think Edwin Jackson or the Uber Driver care what race or nationality the drunk driver was??? At least your class and IQ are on the same level… smh

    Plenty of americans drive drunk and kill people every day. I’m no advocate of illegal immigration but it’s sad to see you right wingers immediately jump on this and politicize it. The guy paying for the funerals easily could’ve been behind the wheel, then what would you say?

  7. Class showing respect. For all his flaws (which we all are flawed) this is a tremendous show of gratitude towards a player and an unknown to him driver by the Colts. This is not a pub grab. It’s true respect for human lives lost. Bang on him or beat on him Irsay wants to win but I live in Cleveland and I would change places with your owner for my owner in two seconds.

    The fact that the particular individual who committed this crime shouldn’t be here in the first place makes it political. The lawlessness of the previous administration that allowed this to happen makes it political. The failure of the liberal media to even mention the fact he was illegal and deported twice makes it political.

  9. This guy was deported twice and had no drivers license. I have no issues with immigrants, but do it the right way!
