    All things considered, Miranda Cosgrove must be feeling pretty lucky.

    The singer and star of the Nickelodeon show "iCarly" broke her ankle when her tour bus was involved in a car accident in Illinois. The incident occurred on I-70 just outside of Vandalia, Illinois. A representative for Cosgrove confirmed the injury and indicated there there were no other injured parties.

    "There were five passengers on the bus, and Miranda suffered a broken ankle," the rep says. "At the time, we are told everyone will be fine."

    The 18 year-old singer was forced to put a halt to her tour "until further notice." Her next date was to be in Wichita, Kansas this Friday.

    TMZ is reporting that the tour bus struck a tractor-trailer that was already overturned and partially blocking one of the lanes on I-70.
