According to a report by the Gyeongnam Provincial Newspaper on the 13th, Jinhwan and Junhoe got into an accident at 3:40am on the same day while riding in a van headed for the south sea towards National Road 3 in Changseon-myeon, Namhae-gun. The van slid in the rainy road and hit the retaining wall along the highway.
The driver, including Jinhwan and Junhoe who were on board the vehicle and were treated for injuries at a nearby hospital.
A local police revealed in a statement, "It was rain accident caused by drunk driving. Their driver, Mr. A had alcohol in his system when he drove. We're still investigating the exact situation."
Because of this, the criticism of the two members including driver A are growing among netizens. Netizens are criticizing A for driving drunk but others are also asking why the members didn't stop A from driving if he was drunk.
In addition, it's fortunate that no one was seriously injured from the accident since they hit a retaining wall but if they had collided with other vehicles, that could've led to other injuries.
In the meantime, YG Entertainment has yet to release a statement.
