Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was one of two men who were struck and killed by a suspected drunk driver early Sunday morning along I-70 in Indiana.
According to information from police gathered by the Indy Star, Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffery Monroe, thought to be a ride-sharing service driver, were standing by a stopped vehicle in the westbound emergency lane along I-70 when a black F-150 veered into the lane, hitting and killing both men.
“One of the people struck was thrown into the center lane of I-70,” Sgt. John Perrine said in a statement, via the Indy Star. “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.”
