Police Releases Preliminary Statement Regarding Taeyeon’s Car Accident
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon was involved in a car accident on November 28. The police who first arrived at the scene released a preliminary statement regarding the accident.
A source from the Nonhyeon Police Station 1 stated to news outlet OSEN, “Taeyeon was very shaken up at the time of the accident. The other parties appeared to have just sustained minor injuries.”
In response to a social media post, the police source also clarified why they did not test her blood alcohol content. They explained, “We give out a sobriety test if there is suspicion of drinking. However, in Taeyeon’s case, there was no alcohol detected [in her system], which is why we did not measure her blood alcohol level.”
