Unnao: Multiple Vehicles Piled-Up On Agra-Lucknow Expressway Due To Dense Fog; 1 Dead, 12 Injured

During winter, most of North India is covered with dense fog. In Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao, several cars collided on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway as a result of heavy fog, which drastically decreased road visibility. A bus and other cars were involved in the serial accident.

The crash on the heavily fogged-over motorway has resulted in one fatality and more than a dozen injuries. Images from the scene of the collision show a Toyota Fortuner SUV striking the bus’s back end and a sedan colliding with the Fortuner. There were ambulances available to take the injured people. The rear ends and bonnets of the cars were crushed by the impact of the collision on the Agra-Lucknow road.

An automobile collided with a house at high speed in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. Due to the dense haze, visibility has been severely limited, resulting in several fog-related accidents reported in the state. Due to heavy fog, two trucks in Agra collided in the morning. Police are on the scene, and no casualties have been reported.

At the Delhi airport, more than 110 flights were impacted when thick fog covered northern India in the morning, reducing visibility to just 50 metres and obstructing traffic flow.
