Indiana State Police released new information on the crash that killed two people, an Uber driver and Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson.

Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe were standing outside their vehicle along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis when they were hit and killed by a pickup truck being driven by Orrego-Savala. State Police said Monday that he's a citizen of Guatemala who gave officers a fake name when he was arrested following the pre-dawn crash. He was transported to the Marion County Jail and his toxicology results are pending.

Jackson and Monroe were stopped on the highway of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis when they were struck by Orrego-Savala, who was intoxicated, according to police.

Jackson, 26, and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe were killed early on Super Bowl Sunday, after Monroe pulled off the Interstate-70 to help Jackson, who had become ill. The incident occurred around 4 a.m. on Sunday when, according to reports, Jackson became sick and Monroe pulled over to the emergency shoulder of Interstate 70 in IN, where they were hit. One of the men was thrown into the center lane and was spotted, along with wreckage from the damaged vehicle, by a passing state trooper.

The man accused of killing an National Football League player and another man in a DUI-related crash Sunday morning is a Mexican immigrant whom authorities are trying to deport, according to charging documents. They also said he had been deported twice before.

Jackson, an undrafted linebacker out of Georgia Southern, played in all 16 games with 8 starts, recording 66 tackles in 2016 for the Colts.

The Colts said in their statement that they "admired" Jackson's "outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality". Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization.

"He was well-respected among all with whom he crossed paths, and he will be greatly missed in our locker room and throughout our entire organization", the statement said. Our thoughts are with Edwin's friends and family during this hard time. "At this time, the only thing we should be focusing on is supporting and loving Mr. Jackson's family and all families impacted by such a tragic loss of life". He was placed on injured reserve by the Colts in September 2017.
