As you guys may or may not know, Nino had a small accident this afternoon (around 12.30 pm, Japan time). His car crashed into a woman's bicycle, while he was driving in the Meguro district (Tokyo). Both of them are okay, though the woman has a minor bruise on her left foot.
The police/authorities are investigating the matter, whether the cause of the accident was due to because Nino wasn't paying attention to where he was going. The intersection where the accident took place, has no traffic lights.
The jimusho commented, they are looking into the matter.

(TBS News) <---edit: This article was updated. Now it mentions that 4 June was his off-day.
If any of these info is not correct, or you know more information (with source), please reply.
I'm just relieved it's not serious and both Nino and the woman are okay.Edit:「嵐」二宮さんの事故で「全メンバーの運転禁止
(link provided by candy311
) <---this article mentions that Nino was on his way to a staff meeting, and that all the guys are prohibited from driving this year, by the company.
The articles seems confusing, so I guess we have to wait and see if there will be more info, and official word from the jimusho. Anyway, I mentioned that accident took place around noon, because '午後０時半ごろ' was mentioned in all the articles I've seen so far.'午後' stands for pm.Edit x 2:嵐・二宮が車で衝突事故！メンバーに運転禁止令

This article mentions about a guy who witnessed the incident, saying that after a scream from a woman, there was a sound of the crash. Then immediately after the crash, Nino went to the woman and carried her to the side and called the ambulance. Nino was calm when the police came for on-site inspection. The jimusho has given Nino a warning and because of collective responsibility (Jun had an accident back in Feb this year), the whole group is prohibited from driving till the end of this year. According to the officials ('関係者' was used)
, it was Nino's off-day and he was on his way back to a meeting about the album.
Hmm...I don't think there was any new updates after this (if there was, please let me know).
