Miley Cyrus Tour Bus Crash Kills 1, Leaves 9 Injured

The driver of one of Miley Cyrus’ tour buses was killed this morning, after the bus struck an embankment and overturned at approximately 8:15 a.m., the Associated Press reports.

The accident occurred on Interstate 85 in Dinwiddle County, Virginia, as the bus traveled toward Greensboro, North Carolina, where the Hannah Montana star is scheduled to perform on Sunday.

Cyrus herself wasn’t on the bus, but TMZ reports that the singer was riding in a four-bus caravan that included the overturned vehicle. Also according to TMZ, nine passengers were injured in the crash, and officials are investigating whether the driver was dead before or after the accident, in an effort to explain why the bus drifted off the road and into the embankment.

Cyrus’ manager confirms that the bus was transporting the tour’s lighting crew.
