PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police have been looking for the driver of who pepper-sprayed a school bus, causing many of the 25 students on board to cough or have watery eyes.

Police say they don't have a detailed description of the driver or the white sport-utility vehicle that passed the bus about 8:50 a.m. Monday.

The bus was coming from Pittsburgh Obama, a school for sixth through 12th graders, when the SUV passed it at an intersection.

Many of the bus windows were open, which is why the spray was able to affect the students. High temperatures in Pittsburgh have been in the 80s for the last few days.

Emergency crews were able to treat the students at the scene.
