Colts Linebacker Killed In DUI Accident By Illegal Alien Wanted For Deportation

Suspect has been deported multiple times...

(UPDATED) The man who is accused of killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson in a DUI accident on Sunday is a Guatemalan national by birth wanted by federal immigration authorities for deportation for being in the United States illegally, according to a report.

Authorities initially said on Sunday that Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, drove his truck into an emergency shoulder on the highway and plowed into a "ride-share vehicle," killing Jackson and 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe. Gonsales was booked at Marion County Jail, where records showed that he is wanted for deportation. The Washington Times reports:

Mr. Cabrera Gonsales didn’t have a driver’s license, tried to flee the scene of the accident and had a blood-alcohol level of at least .15 (nearly twice the legal limit), authorities said.

The booking document, which specifies that Mr. Cabrera Gonsales has a detainer request on him, does not say whether was in the U.S. illegally or as a legal permanent resident who can still be deported for a serious crime.

CBS 4 Indianapolis reported early Monday morning that Gonsales was using an alias and that his real name is Manuel Orrego-Savala, an illegal alien who has been deported multiple times from the U.S., once in 2007 and in 2009.

"It is believed [Orrego-Savala] was intoxicated and was driving without a license," Sgt. John Perrine of the Indiana State Police said. "He was transported to the Marion County Jail, the result of the test for intoxication is pending."
