Nickelodeon's iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove, 18, has lots to be thankful for today. While she's been forced to postpone the rest of her Dancing Crazy Summer Tour over the broken ankle she suffered in a scary tour bus accident this morning, the situation could have been much, much worse if not for her fast-acting bus driver

According to TMZ, the tour bus -- traveling in southern Illinois on its way to Kansas in the dark, early-morning hours today -- came upon an overturned semi truck too little too late. There was no time to avoid the semi and quickly steering away might have flipped the tour bus. Thinking fast, the bus driver instead hit the brakes and sailed head on into the semi truck. So scary but sounds like the best decision under the terrifying circumstances.

Miranda is expressing gratitude for her life today, having only suffered a fractured right ankle and a broken little toe, and I'm sure she's similarly grateful her mom also only suffered bumps and bruises and that her bus driver, while life-flighted from the accident scene, sounds to be okay even though he received 45 stitches. A flipped tour bus might have resulted in much more critical injuries.

So scary. We hope Miranda, her mom, and her hero tour bus driver all get well soon!

Have you ever made a quick decision behind the wheel that helped avoid a major roadway catastrophe?
