Miley Cyrus Will Perform In North Carolina Despite Deadly Tour Bus Crash | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

One of Miley Cyrus’ four tour buses crashed in Virginia on Friday on I-85 after running off of the interstate, hitting an embankment, and overturning. Cyrus was not on the bus, though members of the tour’s production crew were. The VA bus accident killed 53-year-old William Douglas, the driver, and injured one other person. Cyrus, who plays Hannah Montana, was traveling in a different bus at the time of the accident, which took place outside of Richmond, Virginia. Douglas died at the scene of the accident while the nine other people on board escaped through the smashed front windshield.

Despite the deadly bus crash, the tour buses went on to Greensboro North Carolina on Sunday. Cyrus’ website carried a message from the 16-year-old pop rock star about how “deeply saddened” she was by the loss of the bus driver.

The cause of the bus accident is still under investigation by the Virginia State Police.
