More updates have been given regarding the investigation of the car accident that occurred earlier this month which took the lives of Ladies’ Code’s EunB and Rise. Local authorities conducted an experiment to determine the cause and factors of the accident and results concluded that the vehicle indeed was speeding at the time of the occurrence.
At the time of the accident, the vehicle was recorded to have been traveling 137 km/h (~85 mph) on the Yeongdong Expressway which has a speed limit of 100 km/h (~62 mph). However, the van carrying the girls was traveling over the speed limit for over 30km (~19 miles) according to CCTV footage. The speeding van lost control on a wet surface due to rainy weather, and collided into a guardrail, taking the lives of 2, leaving 1 hopitalized. The remaining two members, Ashley and Zuny, walked away from the accident with minor injuries.
A rep at Polaris Entertainment gave a statement on Sojung’s condition, "Sojung is recovering well. The surgery went well, and there are no plans for additional surgeries. After the surgery, she is eating well, too. As she hurt her bone, it looks like it will take more time for the [wound] to heal."
