[NEWS] Park Shin Hye involved in car accident, hospitalized

Actress Park Shin Hye was involved in a car accident at 11:30pm last night (July 18), and is currently hospitalized.

According to the police, Shin Hye's manager Kim Mo(age 26) was driving a Starex van on a highway at Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do when she suddenly crashed into a metallic guide-rail that separates two roads. The vehicle was destroyed severely by the blow, with the front-half of its body demolished and its wheels detached.

Park Shin Hye, her manager, coordi and other 2 people in the car were sent to the nearby Konkuk University Hospital where they are examined and hospitalized. Fortunately, Park Shin Hye only suffered minor injuries because they were all wearing safety seat-belts. She will be spending a day resting at the hospital and then return to filming MBC drama 'Heartstrings' tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the underlying cause of the car accident is still under investigation. The police suspects that it was a result of Ms Kim's fatigue, drowsiness and possibly careless driving.

Let's wish Shin Hye and her friends a speedy recovery. Get well soon everyone!
