Singer Kim Heung-guk, who had been investigated for running away after hitting a motorcycle while making an illegal left turn, was briefly indicted.
The Seoul Western District Prosecutor’s Office announced today (5th) that it had briefly indicted Mr. Kim on charges of violating the Road Traffic Act and escaping under the Special Act on the 3rd.
Summary indictment is a procedure in which a prosecutor requests a summary order from the court to proceed with a written hearing instead of a formal trial when the prosecutor determines that a fine rather than imprisonment or imprisonment is appropriate.
On April 24, Kim is accused of breaking a signal and turning left illegally at an intersection in Yongsan-gu, Seoul.
At the time, Kim Heung-guk denied the hit-and-run allegation, but the motorcyclist has insisted that Kim left the scene without relief measures.
Last June, the police sent Mr. Kim, while also imposing a fine of 40,000 won on the motorcyclist who went straight when the yellow light came on.
