Ladies' Code EunB passes away

The girl group Ladies' Code was involved in a car crash as their van slid on the rainy road and the 22-year-old Go Eunbi has passed away from the accident.

Last night at 1:20 AM KST the van carrying the members of Ladies Code crashed into the traffic barriers on the Young Dong Highway.

The accident has caused Go to pass away and the 23-year-old Kwon Ri Sae and six others have been injured and transported to the hospital.

The police suspects that the accident was due to hydroplaning and is currently investiagating the accident.

Rest In Peace.

update: Rise and Sojung (whose birthday is today...) are currently in critical condition.
update #2: EunB was not wearing her seat belt at the time and was ejected from the car in the crash.
update #3: Polaris Entertainment says that after Ladies' Code's schedule in Daegu and on their way back to Seoul, the back wheel of the car came off in the rain, which spun the car several times before it crashed into the guard rail. Rise is currently in a critical condition due to head trauma injury and Sojung is also being treated; the manager and the stylist with them do not have serious injuries. The members will be airlifted from Suwon to Seoul today. They have not determined where the funeral will be held.

Thanks for the translation, OP.

This is horrible, omg. I always think of something horrible like this happening whenever I see groups pack into those tiny vans. One accident and an entire group can be injured or killed.

RIP to EunB and the driver that they're saying passed away as well, and I hope the others recover quickly. :(

SK needs to do something about their driving laws. It seems like every other day we're hearing about a goddamn car accident.

RIP Eunbi. I hope the rest of Ladies' Code get the time off they need to grieve and physically recover.

then again it was pouring last night in SK and unfortunately hydroplaning is a common occurrence in heavy rain :(

I don't follow LC but I heard it's also Sojung's birthday today too. Ugh this is just terrible.

Such sad news..she was so young just 22(my age :( )

I hear Sojung is in crucial state I hope the girls make it. ugh I hate car accidents

Sojung and RiSe are in critical condition/surgery, AFAIK. People are spreading rumours that Sojung has died as well, but these are false.

Update: Sojung has been stabilized somewhat, but RiSe is still in critical condition. Apparently the accident was caused by a back wheel coming off.
