One person was killed when one of Miley Cyrus' tour bused crashed on an Interstate in rural Virginia on Friday (November 20). The Hanna Montana star was not on the bus that crashed at around 8:15 a.m.
Virginia State Police said one unidentified person was killed when the bus overturned on Interstate 85, about 40 miles south of Richmond. Multiple sources have identified the deceased as the driver of the bus. Another one of the nine passengers on the bus carrying Cyrus' production crew was injured in the incident and transported to a local hospital in undisclosed condition.
The bus was one of four in a tour caravan carrying the 16-year-old singer. Officials told the site that the roads were slick at the time of the accident, due to overnight rains, but that it was unknown at press time if the driver died before or after the bus went off the road and overturned.
Cyrus is to play a show on Sunday in Greensboro, North Carolina. A source close to Cyrus confirmed that she was not on the bus that crashed.
