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.
