One person was left dead this morning after the tour bus for 16-year-old pop star Miley Cyrus overturned on I-85, 30 miles south of Richmond. Cyrus was not on board.

Her black-and-maroon luxury tour bus hit the concrete at around 8:15 a.m. after skidding several hundred feet, according to Virginia State Police. The bus was on its way to Greensboro, N.C. for the next stop on the 2009/2010 “Wonder World Tour” when the  accident occurred.

Members of the Cyrus production crew were on board but only one of the nine were injured. No further personal information regarding the individuals involved in the accident have been revealed by police.

Cyrus is still scheduled to perform on Sunday in Greensboro.
