An update from Polaris
Following the heartbreaking news of the car accident that took the life of Ladies’ Code member EunB, and resulted in the serious injuries of Sojung and Rise, the group’s agency, Polaris Entertainment has offered an official statement with details of the tragic accident:
“This is Polaris Entertainment.
We are letting you know the current situation concerning Ladies’ Code.
Last night, after completing their schedule in Daegu, the vehicle carrying Ladies’ Code ran into a problem of the rear wheel falling off while on the way back to Seoul, at around 1:30 AM in Suwon. Due to the wheel coming off on the rainy road, the vehicle spun several times before crashing into a guardrail. As a result, member EunB grievously passed away.
Currently, Rise is in critical condition and Sojung is receiving treatment for the injuries she sustained. The other members who were also in the vehicle with the manager and stylist have no serious injuries.
The members will be transferred from Suwon to a hospital in Seoul today, but the location of the wake has not yet been decided [for EunB].
Our company employees are currently in an immense state of shock and are experiencing unspeakable sadness at the moment.
We offer our words of apology to the fans, as well as everyone who must have received a great shock. We ask that a lot of people will pray with us for the members to recover quickly.
We will deliver further details as they are known. Thank you.”
Earlier reports had stated that EunB, Sojung, and Rise were in the vehicle with the manager and stylist. However, it is now being reported that the other two members, Ashley and Zuny, were also aboard the same van, but have not sustained major injuries.
While Sojung appears to be in more stable condition now, it is being reported that Rise is still undergoing surgery after receiving trauma to her head. She is currently in the middle of a major procedure that has been ongoing for over seven hours since around 2 AM (KST) on September 3. As the surgery is still continuing, it is difficult to know the exact state of her condition at the moment.
That article was some time ago, so Rise at this time is out of surgery.
Reading on other forums and reddit, I dunno...things aren't looking good for Rise =\
Also, EunB apparently didn't have her seatbelt on so she ended up getting ejected from the vehicle
