FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - An accident on I-69 northbound at about the 308 mile marker left an adult male dead Sunday morning around 3:30 a.m.

At first, investigators believed the man's SUV struck the back of a semi truck.

As the investigation has progressed, it has been determined that the Chevrolet SUV struck the rear of a black bus and not a semi truck.

It does not appear the SUV made contact with the guard rail. Investigators believe after the SUV struck the bus, it then struck the center barrier wall.

The black bus that was involved has been located in the 9800 block of Coldwater Rd., and investigators are currently in the process of interviewing the driver and any other occupants. Police are no longer searching for any semi trucks.

There is nothing further at this time.
