Miranda Cosgrove Breaks Her Ankle in Tour Bus Crash

The iCarly star and singer is putting her concert on hold after being injured in a car accident

The phrase "break a leg" has taken on a new meaning for Miranda Cosgrove, who is suspending her concert tour after breaking her ankle in a tour bus crash Thursday morning.

The iCarly star, 18, was traveling between tour dates in Ohio and Kansas when her bus struck an overturned tractor-trailer on Illinois' Interstate 70. According to the St. Louis CBS News affiliate, Cosgrove's bus hit the truck and injured two bystanders who were helping the tractor-trailer's driver. Both the truck and bus driver have been flown to a St. Louis hospital, while the injured bystanders were driven to another hospital. Police say that of the bus five passengers, only Miranda and her mother were hurt -- and not seriously. In fact, the prognosis is good for all involved.

"At this time, we are told everyone will be fine," Cosgrove's rep told E! News. Confirming that Cosgrove had broken her ankle, the rep added: "Because of this, her tour is postponed until further notice. Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support."

Though we wouldn't wish a broken bone on anyone, it might be nice for Cosgrove to get some rest right now: Besides her busy touring schedule, she just filmed a role in the Drew Barrymore-directed music video for Best Coast's "Our Deal," and has been shooting the fourth season of iCarly (which premieres on Saturday). That's a lot for an 18-year-old girl to handle -- even with all limbs in tact!
