Miranda Cosgrove was injured late last week when her tour bus was in an accident with a tractor trailer.
The iCarly star was leaving Illinois and en route to a gig in Kansas when the tour bus came across the overturned and disabled semi.
Cosgrove’s driver hit the brakes but was unable to avoid the other vehicle.
Miranda broke her ankle, her mother was also injured along with two others. The bus driver was in the most serious condition and had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital where he received around 45 stitches.
“Miranda’s mom was on the bus with her and got really beaten up by the crash,” a source told People. “She’s expected to fully recover, but it’s scary because the driver was hurt, too, and he’s in really bad shape.”
“This was a life-threatening crash,” the source continues, adding that the driver is in critical condition after the bus collided with a tractor-trailer. “A piece from the tractor-trailer went straight through the windshield and the driver’s arm was sliced all the way through.”
Miranda was “really shaken up” by the incident. She is recovering and tweeted to fans on Friday, letting them know she’s doing all right.
“Thank u so much for all your messages,” the teen star tweeted. “They mean so much to me. Yesterday was extremely scary & I’m just so happy everyone’s gonna be okay.”
The 18 year-old is reportedly telling friends that thanks to the bus driver’s decision not to swerve and (probably) overturn their bus, her life may have been saved.
