Miranda Cosgrove - Miranda Cosgrove Breaks Ankle In Tour Bus Smash

Miranda Cosgrove, the American singer and actress best known for starring in 'iCarly', has broken her ankle in a tour bus crash. The vehicle Cosgrove was travelling in collided with a tractor-trailer in Illinois this morning (11th August 2011), reports Tmz.com.
Miranda performed in Ohio on Wednesday evening and was en route to Kansas where she has another date scheduled for Friday. Her representative explained the bus was involved in an incident on the I-70 just outside of Vandelia, adding, "There were 5 passengers on the bus, and Miranda suffered a broken ankle. At this time, we are told everyone will be fine". The spokesperson confirmed the Nickelodeon star's 'Dancing Crazy Tour' will now be postponed, adding, "Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support". Local reports suggest the tractor trailer was already overturned - blocking one of the lanes in the road. Miranda's bus then crashed into part of the vehicle while attempting to pass.
As of May 2010, the actress was earning $180,000 per episode for 'iCarly', making her one of the highest paid child stars on U.S. television. Following the show's success, she released a soundtrack album in 2008 followed by her debut album 'Sparks Fly' in 2010.
