Last night, three vehicles collided in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do, killing four NCOs nearby. It was a three-way street that flashed at night, and after the first crash, there was a second accident.
This is a report from Jeon Yeon-nam.
At about 8:10 yesterday evening, three cars crashed one after another at a three-way street in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do.
A black passenger car, going straight, bumped into an SUV that was about to turn left, hit the median in an accident, crossed the center line, and hit another car from the opposite lane.
I'm on a three-way street in Yeoncheon where the accident happened, and when you look at the central divider, you can see that it's completely broken by the crash, and there's still a skid mark on the road, a sign of a car's sudden brake.

The incident killed all four soldiers in their twenties.
Two of the opposing lanes were also seriously injured.
The four dead were on their way out to the Uijeongbu, leaving their troops on the day.
The crossroads where the accident occurred turn into a yellow flashing signal after 8:00 pm and must be slow and watch out for other vehicles.
Police are investigating whether the two accidental vehicles were paying attention to the car and not speeding at the flashing signal.
