After the Ladies' Code car accident, their management agency Polaris Entertainment released an official announcement via TV Report, stating that EunB had passed away and that two of the members RiSe and Sojung were in critical condition and undergoing surgery.
The agency said,
"There was a car accident because of the rain that fell at dawn. They were moved to the St. Vincent Hospital of the Catholic University of Korea in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do. However, member EunB passed away at the scene of the accident. Members RiSe and Sojung sustained big injuries, so they are in the middle of surgery.
After the completion of RiSe and Sojung's surgery, they must be transferred to a hospital in Seoul. We have not yet decided which hospital that would be."
Polaris has also released another statement saying that RiSe is still in critical condition, but Sojung was slowly becoming more stable. The statement reads,
"Near Suwon around 1:30 AM, the car that Ladies' Code had been riding in after finishing up their schedule in Daegu experienced a problem where the back wheel came off. With the back wheel coming off on the rainy road, the car ended up spinning several times before hitting the guard rail. Due to this, EunB tragically passed away.
Currently, RiSe is in critical condition and Sojung is receiving treatment for her injuries. The other members and the manager and stylist have no big injuries... The members will be transferred from Suwon to a hospital in Seoul, and the location for the wake [for EunB] has not yet been decided on.
Our company employees are also currently in great shock and are experiencing sadness that cannot be expressed in words. We offer our apology to the fans and all those who have also been greatly shocked, and we hope that many can pray for the speedy recovery of the members."
