Girls' Generation Member Taeyeon Causes Car Accident Due to 'Her Own Careless Driving'

Girls’ Generation member Taeyeon luckily did not sustain any major injuries after causing a three-car accident in South Korea on Tuesday evening (November 28).

The 28-year-old My Voice pop superstar was driving her Mercedes-Benz when she struck a taxi, which then hit another stopped car in front.

“Today at 7:40 p.m. [KST] in the area of Nonhyeon-dong, while attending to personal business, Taeyeon was involved in a car accident through her own careless driving. She is very apologetic towards the other drivers and passengers and will work diligently to resolve the post-accident matters. After dealing with the traffic accident, she has returned home safely without injuries. We apologize for having caused anxiety,” her agency SM Entertainment confirmed in a statement.

Police also confirmed the news to OSEN: “Taeyeon was very shaken up at the time of the accident. The other parties appeared to have just sustained minor injuries.”

Taeyeon herself spoke out on social media after a series of claims arose suggesting she received special treatment by emergency crew. Others claiming to be passengers suggested she did not apologize.

“I’m sorry for causing worry. I apologized to the taxi driver, but the others did not want my contact information. I’m letting you guys know because there have been several misunderstandings. I’ll be a bit more careful with driving in the future. I apologize for causing worry,” she wrote.

    I saw the video and it wasnt anything different from what happens daily in the traffic of any country.
    She wasn’t drunk or anything, it was like her representatives said: ” careless driving”. She assumed her fault and that’s it. Lets turn this page.
    This already has extended more then it should’ve…especially with some crazy people trying now to say she was with her dog in the front seat LOL!! I guess the new trend in Korea is to say a dog was involved to see if they can demonize it more.
