Colts Linebacker Edwin Jackson Dead at 26, Hit By Suspected Drunk Driver

Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed this weekend after being hit by a suspected drunk driver.

According to Indiana State Police, Jackson and another man, Jeffrey Monroe, were struck early Sunday morning by a driver off of I-70 in Indianapolis. Both men were killed.

Cops say Jackson and Monroe were standing near a stopped vehicle on the shoulder of the highway when a black Ford F-150 truck swerved into their area and hit them.

The Colts released a statement on Jackson's death, saying, in part ... "We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization." A rep for the team added ... "We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this difficult time."
