A male driver was pronounced dead after his SUV struck the back of a bus on Interstate 69 early Sunday morning.An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday for the man, whose name will be released after his next of kin has been notified, according to the Allen County coroner's office.

The man's Chevrolet SUV struck the rear of a black bus and then hit the center barrier wall of northbound I-69 close to the Goshen Road exit at 3:31 a.m., according to Officer Chris Felton, spokesman for the Fort Wayne Police Department. A red pickup traveling northbound approached the accident scene, but the driver lost control of the vehicle, which spun around, striking the rear of the SUV before coming to a stop. The pickup's driver reported no injuries.

Police were searching for the bus soon after the crash and the driver might not have known it had been struck, Felton reported earlier. Police found the bus in the 9800 block of Coldwater Road and investigators questioned the driver and any possible occupants.

The case remained under investigation by the Fort Wayne Police Department, the Fatal Alcohol Crash Team, the coroner's office and the Allen County prosecutor's office.
