The driver of Miranda Cosgrove 's tour bus, which collided with a tractor-trailer on Thursday morning (11th August 2011) remains in a critical condition in hospital. Cosgrove escaped from the "life-threatening" incident with a broken ankle, but the driver is in "a really bad shape", according to People Magazine.
After performing in Ohio on Wednesday evening, the Nickelodeon star and her entourage were en route to Kansas for another date scheduled for Friday. The bus reportedly crashed into the overturned trailer on the I-70 just outside of Vandelia. A source close to the singer said, "Miranda's mom was on the bus with her and got really beaten up by the crash.She's expected to fully recover, but it's scary because the driver was hurt, too, and he's in really bad shape". The insider added that people sleeping in bunks at the back of the vehicle were not affected, but Miranda was sleeping on a couch in the front. The singer is recovering well, but the source adds, "The paparazzi craze at the hospital has been additionally overwhelming".
The incident has forced Cosgrove to postpone the remaining dates on her 'Dancing Crazy Tour'. Her representative noted, "Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support".
