Daughter killed in first collision… On the way home from work, a car running in the opposite direction of the tunnel hit by a mother and daughter


A man in his 30s, who was drunk and behind the wheel, was driving in the reverse direction in a tunnel and collided with two cars. The drivers of the victims were mother and daughter who worked together and went to work in their own cars, but their 20-year-old daughter died in an accident.

Yangjeong Tunnel in Geoje-si, Gyeongsangnam-do at dawn.

A collision occurred in front of a moving vehicle, and smoke billowed out.

A reverse-driving vehicle driven in a drunken state by a male driver in his 30s collided with two vehicles one after another.

In the accident, a woman in her 20s in the vehicle that collided first died on the spot, and a woman in her 40s in the vehicle that followed was also injured.

The offending vehicle entered the tunnel while driving in the opposite direction, not the lane that normally enters the tunnel.

The vehicles in the accident were driven by a mother and daughter on their way home after work at the store.

The 27-year-old Ok Mo, who died, was a kinder daughter than anyone who came down from Seoul to her hometown after the Corona 19 crisis and helped her parents with their shop.

The family members of the bereaved family cannot hide their sorrow over Mr. Ok’s unfair death due to drunken driving backwards.

The police plan to apply for an arrest warrant after investigating the exact circumstances of the accident as soon as the driver of the perpetrator vehicle, who was seriously injured and is receiving treatment, recovers.
