Daesung’s accident + motorcyclist pronounced dead
The Seoul Youngdeung-Po Police Department has released an official statement on May 31st aboutDaesung’s role in the car accident, stating, “Daesung has violated his duty to drive safely.”
The police explained: “At 1:28AM, Daesung was driving in the first lane from Hapjeong-dong in the direction of Yangpyung-dong on a 4-lane road. He was driving at 80km per hour (speed limit is 60km/h) and crashed into a stopped taxi after driving over a motorcyclist who was passed out on the street.”
They continued, “We will carry out a more detailed examination by monitoring the CCTV collected around the accident site, as well as gathering eyewitness reports and understanding the path of the motorcycle. We have requested an autopsy on the victim from the National Institute of Scientific Investigation.
Meanwhile, Lee Hyori tweeted her worries, “I know that Daesung always blames himself for everything even though it’s not his fault, thus I’m more saddened and worried for him.”

On May 31st, officials spoke through Star News and revealed, “Daesung is in great shock and sadness over an accident that he could not avoid. He burst into tears due to his concerns for the injured party.”
At 1:40 AM KST, Daesung had crashed into a taxi that was ahead of him. Fortunately, the taxi driver was not reported to be injured. According to YG Entertainment, the taxi was swerving in and out of the two lanes before quickly braking at a downhill road, which resulted in the accident.
Officials continued, “Immediately after the accident, Daesung got out of the car and headed straight for the taxi driver. After asking how he was, the taxi driver said, ‘That isn’t the problem right now.’ There was a motorcyclist already bleeding in the lane, which led the taxi driver to swerve out into the second lane in order to avoid hitting him, before making an abrupt stop.”
Investigations are currently being held as to whether the motorcyclist was killed by a hit-and-run, and whether Daesung’s car collided with him at all. It has been confirmed, however, that the motorcyclist was pronounced dead. Investigators are currently awaiting autopsy results in order to see whether he was already dead prior to Daesung’s accident, or whether his death was connected to him.
