National Football League fans are still reeling from the tragic death of Indianapolis Colt's player Edwin Jackson, and now the suspect allegedly responsible for the fatal vehicle accident that killed him has been charged with multiple felonies.

He remained jailed Tuesday but has not been formally charged in the crash.

"The defendant in this case allegedly re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men early Sunday morning", US Attorney Josh Minkler said in a statement.

A blood test conducted at a hospital determined he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent, more than double Indiana's legal limit for driving, according to court documents.

Authorities say Orrego-Savala was deported from the 2007 and 2009, and he was again living illegally in the USA, in Indianapolis.

Orrego-Zavala allegedly tried to flee the scene of the crash, but was caught by a state police officer.

Orrego-Savala does not now have an attorney, but one will be appointed before Wednesday morning's initial hearing. ICE said it has placed an immigration detainer on Orrego-Savala at the Marion County Jail. After an attacker, originally from Uzbekistan according to authorities, drove through a crowd of NY pedestrians and killed eight in November, Trump called for an immigration crackdown.

A man listed as Alex Cabrera Gonsales - the alias officials say Orrego-Savala used - was arrested in March 2017 in Whitestown, Indiana, after a driving infraction, according to a Whitestown Police report.

"To be very honest with you, after Sunday's events with the passing of Edwin Jackson and Jeffrey Monroe, it was a very tough two days". The president also prodded Democrats to work with him on illegal immigration and border security.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37, who came into the United States illegally from Guatemala, was charged with four felony counts related to the Sunday crash along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis.

"It's just another tragedy marked up in this illegal immigration fight that we're having and it doesn't surprise me in the lease", said Mary Ann Mendoza. Orrego-Savala has been deported twice but returned to the country illegally each time.

Both men were struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by Orrego-Savala, police said. He also has numerous other misdemeanor convictions and arrests in California and in, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Nicole Alberico.
