Where’s the Web camera when you need it? Thursday brought bad luck to “iCarly” star Miranda Cosgrove: She was in a bus accident, broke her ankle and had to postpone her summer tour.

The 18-year-old starlet was forced to postpone the remainder of her “Dancing Crazy Summer Tour” after sustaining a broken ankle when her tour bus crashed early Thursday morning, a spokesperson said in a statement. The accident occurred as Cosgrove’s bus was traveling on I-70 in Illinois, just outside of Vandalia. There were five passengers on the bus.

“We are told that everyone will be fine,” the statment went on. “Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support.”

The Nickelodeon royalty performed Wednesday at Kettering, Ohio’s, Fraze Pavilion. She had been scheduled to perform at the L.A. County Fair on Sept. 17. The tour was scheduled to wrap Oct. 23 in Arizona.


No word on whether dates will be rescheduled.
