MONSTA X's Kihyun, Wonho, Hyungwon gets involved in a minor car accident

One of the worst things that can ever happen to a person is to get involved in a car accident. According to the Annual Global Road Crash Statistics, around 1.3 million people die from road accidents every year. That is about 3,287 deaths per day. But that isn't the end of it because around 20-50 million people are injured every year from car crashes.

While death may just be the reality of life, there are of course those who get out lucky. You can definitely say that MONSTA X's Kihyun, Hyungwon, and Wonha are part of the lucky ones when they got involved in a minor car accident on the night of October 26.

According to a report made by Soompi, a source had revealed to Ilgan Sports on October 27 that three MONSTA X members, mainly Kihyun, Wonha and Hyungwon got involved in a minor car collision at a toll gate while they were driving to Seoul from Busan around 11 pm and thankfully, though, all of them got through the whole ordeal unscathed.

Starship Entertainment, the K-Pop group's talent agency, in a statement said, "It was just a minor crash. There were no apparent injuries to the boys although they were a bit surprised. But we are still planning to take the boys to a hospital immediately if they experience any pain because even the smallest accidents can have surprising side effects."

The boys sure are lucky they didn't get involved in anything life threatening. If you could remember back in 2007, Super Junior's Leeteuk, Shindong, Eunhyuk, and Kyuhyun, along with their managers all got involved in a major car accident with Kyuhyun getting the brunt of the injuries, fracturing his hip, lots of scratches and bruises, and a collapsed lung. The unfortunate incident had left him in a coma under intensive care for about six days with only 20% chance of survival. Luckily, the singer recovered although it had almost cost him his vocal ability.

Accidents are definitely hard to avoid but it's still possible. After the minor accident, MONSTA X then went to Jeju Island for a special episode of Mnet's M Countdown to perform alongside various other artists such as BTS, GOT7, TWICE, Pentagon, I.O.I and more. Watch their performance below.
