When you hear about singers getting crazy on their tour bus, it’s usually not followed by the words “as they howled in pain while clutching their broken leg.” People reports that singer Miranda Cosgrove injured her ankle after her tour bus slammed into an overturned tractor trailer outside Vandalia, Illinois this morning. “There were five passengers on the bus, and Miranda suffered a broken ankle,” Cosgrove’s rep said in a statement. “At the time, we are told everyone will be fine.” Or as fine as you can be if you woke up to find yourself hurtling through a tour bus.
The driver of the truck Phillip Carter and bus driver Rodney McClure were among the most injured in the accident, and at least three people had to be taken to a hospital. The crash also forced Cosgrove to cancel her Wichita concert date tomorrow, with all upcoming dates on hold. “Her tour is postponed until further notice,” her rep says. “Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support,” and hopes everyone will respect her wishes to travel via plane next time.
