Indianapolis State Police said Jeffrey Monroe, 54, a ride-share operator, stopped his vehicle on the side of the road after Jackson had become ill, according to NFL.com. They were standing outside of it when the pickup truck drove onto the emergency shoulder and struck them.
"One of the people struck was thrown into the center lane of I-70,” Sgt. John Perrine said in a statement. “Shortly after the crash, and before any 911 calls were received, Trooper Ty Mays was driving through the area and noticed a vehicle in front of him make an evasive maneuver to the left.”
Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, the driver of the vehicle, tried to escape the scene of the accident on foot. He was later apprehended by authorities.
“It is believed Gonsales was intoxicated and was driving without a license,” Perrine said in a statement. “He was transported to the Marion County Jail, the result of the test for intoxication is pending.”
