Today (23rd) at around 1:40 am, a car crashed into a road sign on a road in Seo-gu, Daejeon.

Immediately after the collision, the car caught fire, killing two people in the front seat, including the 24-year-old driver, and three others, including his 19-year-old brother in the back seat, were injured and taken to the hospital.

Based on his brother's statement, police believe the driver caused the accident while intoxicated.


Red flames rise in the middle of the campsite.

The vehicle was completely burned with only the skeleton remaining.

A fire broke out at a camping trailer parked at a campsite in Gapyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do at around 3:30 am this morning.

Three family members, including a mother, daughter, and grandson, were staying in the trailer that caught fire. The daughter and grandson escaped, but the mother in her 60s died without being able to escape.

The police say that the fire has so far been presumed to have started due to an electrical problem, and they plan to determine the cause of the fire through precise identification.
