Miranda Cosgrove was involved in a tour bus accident and suffered a broken ankle. Everyone on the bus is expected to be ok, but her tour will be postponed.

Miranda Cosgrove’s tour bus was involved in an auto accident on Thursday morning in Illinois, a rep for the teen singer/actress confirmed to Access Hollywood.

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

The accident occurred on Interstate 70, just outside of Vandalia, Illinois – which is about 70 miles east of St. Louis, Missouri.

According to a local news report, Cosgrove’s tour bus struck a tractor-trailer that was already overturned on the highway.

As a result of the accident, Cosgrove – who rocketed to fame as the star of Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” – is putting the rest of her “Dancing Crazy Summer Tour” on hold.

“Her tour is postponed until further notice,” the rep added. “Miranda thanks everyone for their understanding and support.”

The 18-year-old singer performed in Kettering, Ohio on Wednesday and was en route to Wichita, Kansas for a scheduled show on Friday.

The tour was originally scheduled to wrap up October 23 in Phoenix, Ariz.

Miranda’s mother and bus driver were two of the people most banged up!

“Miranda’s mom was on the bus with her and got really beaten up by the crash,” a source close to theiCarly star tells PEOPLE. “She’s expected to fully recover, but it’s scary because the driver was hurt, too, and he’s in really bad shape because the injury happened close to his heart.”

“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.”

According to the source, the people on the bus who were sleeping on the bunks in the back were not physically affected by the crash, but because Cosgrove, 18, was sleeping on a couch in the front, she felt the impact.
