Ladies Code member Kwon Ri-sae has died from her injuries following last week’s car crash involving the group. She was 23.
Ri-sae, popularly known as RiSe, was pronounced dead on Sunday morning – three days after the crash happened.
This now means that the Korean pop group has lost two of its members to the crash. As ENTmania! previously reported, 23-year old EunB died minutes after the crash. One member sustained a broken jaw, while the other two walked away with minor injuries.
According to AP, the driver of the van – who was presumed dead in earlier reports – is still alive and only sustained minor injuries. Police have cause to believe that he was speeding on the rain-drenched highway, which caused the van to skid and crash onto a guard rail.
‘Inspector Lee Ho-dong said the police will call in the driver, who was treated for a mild injury, for more questioning,’ reports AP.
