The suspect vehicle will have damage on the passenger-side headlight and bumper area. It has what appears to be a circular decal on the lower right corner of the rear windshield, police noted.

Police said the driver of the IndyGo bus is cooperating with the investigation.

Southbound traffic on Madison Avenue was diverted at Southport Road for three hours after the incident.

The investigation is still ongoing.
