(INDIANAPOLIS) - The man accused of killing a Colts player and an Uber driver during a drunk-driving crash this weekend faces multiple charges in connection with the case.

According to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, Manuel Orrego-Zavala was charged with two counts of failure to remain at the scene of an accident and two counts of causing death when operating a motor vehicle with an alcohol concentration of .15 or more.

Prosecutors said Orrego-Zavala, an undocumented immigrant who has been deported from the U.S. twice, crashed his truck on I-70 near Holt Road early Sunday morning. The driver, Jeffrey Monroe, and passenger, Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson, were standing outside their vehicle when Orrego-Zavalas' truck hit them.

A test showed his blood-alcohol content was nearly three times Indiana's legal limit of .08.

Investigators said Orrego-Zavala, who was in the country illegally, left the scene. An Indiana State trooper later apprehended him. He appeared in court Wednesday for an initial hearing.

Orrego-Zavala also faces a federal immigration charge, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
