Man drives SUV into sea after girlfriend tells him that she wants to break up

On June 28, Ulsan's maritime coast guard submitted an arrest warrant for a 49-year-old man charged with the attempted murder of his girlfriend.

The man is suspected of attempting to murder his 44-year-old girlfriend on June 24 by driving the SUV they were both riding in into a fishing port located in Busan's Gijang County. 

Subsequent plunging the SUV into the port, the man made his escape through the open window of the driver's seat. Thankfully, the woman's life was spared after being rescued by an emergency medical team but she is currently unconscious. 

The man's blood alcohol level is estimated to be around 0.09% at the time immediately following the accident, leading authorities to initially believe that the whole incident was purely an accident. However, after reviewing the footage of the SUV's dashcam, Ulsan's coast guard found that the man had intentionally driven the vehicle into the sea.

According to the report, through the dash cam footage, you can hear the man respond angrily, "Are you saying you'd rather live alone," when the woman told him to drop her off if he was going to drive under the influence. The man was then heard letting out a stream of expletives and flooring the accelerator pedal. 

Investigations into the case found that the man and woman had gotten into a verbal argument after the woman relayed her intent to break off their relationship. Police believe that the man only wanted to scare the woman into changing her mind by pretending to drive into the sea; however, when the woman showed no signs of wanting to get back with him, the man, unable to control his rage, actually drove the car into the port. 

A police officer stated, "The man denied his crime but he eventually confessed when we interrogated him using all the evidence we had gathered."

I actually watched a talk show where the host suggested having difficult discussions (like breaking bad news) when the other person is driving. They said it'd be good because the driver would have to keep their composure because they need to be able to drive safely. Guess that only works if the driver isn't crazy like this guy

She made a good decision of leaving him. He's a cry baby and he's horrible for trying to harm someone he "loves".

thank goodness the girlfriend was saved! Who would harm someone they love? If they don't want you, let them go and find someone else that will return your love.

"The man's blood alcohol level is estimated to be around 0.09% at the time immediately following the accident, leading authorities to initially believe that the whole incident was purely an accident." That is a really fucked up conclusion.... to think something is an "accident" when the driver's alcohol level is like double the legal limit..... guess drinking 5 bottles of soju was an "accident" as well...... wow............ just shows how idiotic SK mindset is when it comes to alcohol. It's a drug folks! Just like pot, and mushrooms, and speed... and what not... people should immediately go to jail for things like this! Even if he was alone in that car.

He's be arrested here but likely given bail until trial. BTW .09 isn't a terribly high number. The legal limit here is .08. You can blow an .08 after two beers depending on your gender and size. I hardly think he drank 5 bottles of soju either. Soju has about 19% alcohol. The average beer has around 4 or 5%. A craft beer might have anything from 5 to 12%. The man would have a considerably higher blood alcohol level than .09% if he drank 5 bottles.

legal limit in korea is .05, unless they changed it recently... .08 is actually very high and as far as i know only malaysia and singapore have that limit, and it indeed corresponds to around 2 (or 3) units of alcohol (so, 2 beers, or a glass of wine and a shot of some spirits).

Lol I don't get people that lose their mind after a break up. Stay on those antidepressants, buddy.
