The team’s van slipped while driving down a rainy road, around 1:20AM in South Korea. The girls’ van ran into a wall at the Singal Intersection of Yeondong Expressway in the direction of Incheon. EunB passed away while the six other passengers were injured and rushed to hospital. The driver also passed away. Rise, another member of the group who was reported to be in critical condition due to head injury, is already out of surgery but still under close observation. The group’s agency, Polaris Entertainment has issued a statement regarding the tragic accident via Yahoo! Philippines
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.

I can’t believe what happened to EunB today… she was much too young. 1992-2014 is too soon. I hope she finds peace in Heaven ~ — #RIPEunB (@SooJungForever) September 3, 2014
