Warbler-actor Miranda Cosgrove broke her ankle earlier this morning when her tour bus hit a tractor-trailer about 14 miles east of Vandalia, Ill. (It's northeast of St. Louis.)

Police tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that three people on the bus were takent to a nearby hospital for treatment. Miranda, 18, who is best known for her role in Nickelodeon's iCarly, was not seriously injured.

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

Miranda is currently on her Dancing Crazy Summer Tour, which brought her to the Mann Center on July 22.

He moved to Philadelphia in the mid-‘80s to seek enlightenment, and instead received a B.A. in literature at Penn. While pursuing doctoral studies in modern religious thought and philosophy, he worked at the Inquirer as a news clerk, researcher, editor, and entertainment writer.

He hopes SideShow will help citizens better understand the vicissitudes of the Consumerist-Military-Industrial-Infotainment Complex, or, in other words, why Britney Spears has a tendency to shave her head, Brangelina to adopt children, and Lindsay Lohan to crave imprisonment.
