Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed early Super Bowl Sunday morning after being hit by a suspected drunk driver along the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr. Jackson and another person, Jeffery Monroe of Avon, were stopped along the side of I-70 when Mr. Monroe, who was believed to be a ride-sharing operator driving Mr. Jackson, got out of the car to help Mr. Jackson, who was sick. The driver of a Ford F-150 drove onto the emergency shoulder and hit the rear of the car, striking both Mr. Jackson and Mr. Monroe, with one of the bodies landing in the center lane of I-70.
State Trooper, Ty Mays, who was in the area, reported to the scene after seeing the accident on the side of the road.
