Uber Driver: Indianapolis Meachum and Nfl Player

uber driver: Atlanta attorney Daniel Meachum is a spokesman for relatives of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, who died Sunday along with his Uber driver when a pickup truck struck them along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis, according to Metro News. Meachum says Jackson's relatives are in shock and just want to grieve as a family. The family of an NFL player killed in a suspected drunken-driving crash allegedly caused by a man who was living illegally in the U.S. is grieving privately as the tragedy stirs a national political reaction. He says they planned no response to President Donald Trump's tweets Tuesday about the double-fatality and the crash suspect's immigration status. Federal immigration authorities say a man being held in a suspected drunken-driving crash that killed an Indianapolis Colts player has a prior conviction in California. Trump referred to Jackson's death as disgraceful and called on Democrats to work with him on border security and illegal immigration. 12 05 p.m. ( As reported in the news.
