SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Police say South Korean singer Go Eun-bi, better known as EunB, has died after a van carrying her group Ladies' Code crashed on a rain-drenched highway near Seoul.

Officials say her bandmate RiSe, whose real name is Kwon Ri-sae, was seriously injured in the accident early Wednesday and remains in critical condition after undergoing emergency surgery.

Police inspector Lee Ho-dong says the singers were returning to Seoul after recording a TV program in the southeastern city of Daegu.

The group's agency says another band member fractured a bone and two others had minor injuries and were treated for shock.

Lee says the driver, who was treated for a minor injury before questioning, may have been speeding on a wet road to meet a tight schedule.

Ladies' Code debuted last year.
