Police officials said in a statement that the bus driver stopped the bus and several passengers ran to help the victim, who had minor injuries.
The jogger ran back across the bridge about 15 minutes later, according to police. The victim tried to confront him about the incident, but he did not acknowledge her.
"The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road," Metro Police Sgt. Mat Knowles said in the statement. "It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle."
Knowles said that investigators were “keen” to talk to the jogger about the incident.
“We would urge him or anyone who recognizes him to get in touch with us as soon as possible,” Knowles said.
