One person was killed when one of [artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist]' tour buses crashed on an Interstate in rural Virginia on Friday (November 20). According to The Associated Press, Cyrus was not on the bus that crashed at around 8:15 a.m.
Virginia State Police said one unidentified person was killed when the bus overturned on Interstate 85, about 40 miles south of Richmond. Multiple sources have identified the deceased as the driver of the bus; the driver's name had not been released at press time. Another one of the nine passengers on the bus carrying Cyrus' production crew was injured in the incident and transported to a local hospital in undisclosed condition.
TMZ reported that the bus was one of four in a tour caravan carrying the 16-year-old singer. Officials told the site that the roads were slick at the time of the accident, due to overnight rains, but that it was unknown at press time if the driver died before or after the bus went off the road and overturned.
Cyrus is slated to play a show on Sunday in Greensboro, North Carolina. A spokesperson for the singer could not be reached for comment at press time, but a source close to Cyrus confirmed that she was not on the bus that crashed. Photos of the accident site show the bus on its side in a gully by the side of the Interstate.
