Pictures of T-ara’s So Yeon in the Hospital and Crashed Van Released
New pictures of So Yeon recovering in the hospital as well as a picture of the van she was riding in have been revealed online.
So Yeon and her entourage were traveling to Busan on the expressway in a van in the early hours of August 13, when slippery conditions on the road led to the van hydroplaning and crashing into a guard rail.
The Gyeongbuk Provincial Police Agency has since released a picture of the crashed van which showed just how dangerous the accident was.
The black van was severely damaged, with its front bumper lying on the road while scratches and dents marked the van’s sides and back. Some of the windows could be seen missing, presumably broken from the accident.
Core Contents Media also revealed pictures of So Yeon as she and the other accident victims continued to recover and receive treatment at the local hospital. Since the accident, So Yeon has been moved to a hospital in Gumi and the pictures shows So Yeon laying in a hospital bed while wearing a neck brace.
Though luckily avoiding any major injuries, the singer is continuing to rest and recover as she is said to be experiencing pain in her back, neck and other parts of her body and is still awaitng the results of a number of medical tests.
So Yeon has cancelled filming for her KBS drama, Haeundae Lovers today and her agency said they will continue to monitor her health and condition before deciding on when she can return to the drama set.
The police added that, had So Yeon and her entourage not worn their seat belt, the car accident would have likely added to the injuries sustained by the victims.
