“iCarly” star Miranda Cosgrove was injured in a bus accident early on Thursday (August 11), her rep confirmed to MTV News. The 18-year-old actress/singer, who is currently on her summer tour, was not seriously injured but did suffer a broken ankle.
“Miranda Cosgrove’s tour bus was involved in an accident early this morning in Illinois on I-70, just outside of Vandalia,” her rep said in a statement. Cosgrove had been traveling from a Wednesday night show in Ohio to Kansas for her Friday stop on the Dancing Crazy Tour. “There were five passengers on the bus, and Miranda suffered a broken ankle. At this time, we are told everyone will be fine.
“Because of this, her tour is postponed until further notice,” the statement concludes. “Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support.”
The tour had dates slated through October, when it was going to wrap up in Arizona. She was about halfway through the jaunt, which kicked off in Ohio last month.
Cosgrove recently appeared in the Best Coast video for the track “Our Deal.” The ’50s-themed clip features some of Hollywood’s biggest up-and-comers like Cosgrove, Chloë Moretz, Tyler Posey and Donald Glover, and was directed by someone else who understands the transition from child star to adult A-lister, Drew Barrymore. “I had a great time,” Cosgrove said. “I’ve been watching Drew Barrymore movies ever since I was really little, so I was nervous to meet her.”
