From the AP:
One person was killed Friday when a tour bus belonging to entertainer Miley Cyrus overturned, but the 16-year-old Hannah Montana star wasn't on board, Virginia State Police said.

Sgt. Thomas Molnar said the bus ran off the left side of Interstate 85, struck an embankment and overturned. The accident occurred around 8:15 a.m. in Dinwiddie County, about 40 miles south of Richmond. Speed and weather weren't considered factors, although TMZ says the roads were wet from rain.

Molnar said the person who died at the scene was male, but didn't identify him pending notification of family members. One of the other nine people on the bus suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Police wouldn't identify those aboard.

TMZ says officials were investigating whether the driver died before or after the accident, which may explain why it drifted off the road and skidded several hundred feet into a ditch.

Molnar said the bus was one of four traveling together after the singer's two-show stint Wednesday and Thursday in Long Island, N.Y. The group was heading to Greensboro, N.C., where she was scheduled to perform Sunday.
