A second member of the South Korean band Ladies' Code has died from injuries sustained from a motor accident.
Kwon Ri-sae, 23, died Sunday morning at a hospital in Suwon, just south of Seoul, the band's management agency said. She had been unconscious after undergoing hours of emergency brain surgery immediately following Wednesday's accident.
Fellow band member Go Eun-bi died shortly after a van carrying the group crashed into a guardrail on a rain-drenched highway near Seoul.
Police suspect that the van driver may have been speeding on the wet road to meet a tight schedule. The National Forensic Service is currently investigating the accident.
Another member of the five-member group fractured her jaw and two others suffered minor injuries.
