Former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson has been killed after being hit by a suspected drunk driver.

Fox News reports that Jackson, 26, was hit at around 4 a.m. on Sunday on Interstate 70 in Indiana.

Jackson was with another man, believed to be Jackson’s ride-share driver, when both were standing outside of the car. A pickup truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and hit them both, then tried to run away on foot. Both men were killed.

State police said the driver “was intoxicated and driving without a license. He was transported to the Marion County Jail.”

The Colts said in a statement on Sunday:

“We were heartbroken to hear the news of Edwin Jackson’s passing. Edwin was loved by all in the Colts organization. We admired his outgoing personality, competitive spirit and hard-working mentality.”
