The 3 person idol group known as AyumiKurikaMaki, was involved in a car accident the other night on December 27th. While the girls are OK and are currently recovering from the crash, their injuries are severe enough so that the girls are unable to perform any activities for the time being. According to reports, as the vehicle was driving the rear tire was punctured, causing the vehicle to roll. Thankfully though the girls are all safe and sound, but the injuries did range from bruising to cervical sprain (whiplash). Due to their injuries and in order to recover quickly and correctly, the group has since cancelled all of their upcoming events and year-end program appearances. The members and the staff expressed their sadness and frustrations about not being able to perform, as they were all so looking forward to the events, and even apologized to their fans for having to cancel. AyumiKurikaMaki plans on starting up their activities again on January 23rd, when their next tour is scheduled to take place. Hopefully this gives the members and anyone else involved more than enough time to recover and become healthy again.
