INDIANAPOLIS — The IndyGo bus driver involved in a fatal downtown Indianapolis crash on January 1 has been fired.

The crash, between a bus and passenger vehicle, happened at 3 p.m. at Michigan and Davidson streets.

The driver of the car, 54-year-old Cindy Evans, was killed. A child in the car with Evans and a passenger on the bus were injured.

According to IndyGo Director of Public Affairs and Partnerships Lesley Gordon, "After thorough review of the incident, it has been determined that the actions of the operator compromised the safety of the driver and passengers of the vehicle and those riders on the coach. IndyGo's internal investigation has resulted to the termination of the operator."

Gordon says IndyGo's own investigation found drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the crash.

Specifics on exactly why the crash happened have not been released.

The bus driver worked six years for IndyGo.
