As a thick layer of smog enveloped parts of North India, Agra-Noida Yamuna Expressway turned into an accident zone after atleast ten cars rammed into each other at relatively high-speed, resulting in injuries to many. In a shocking video released by the Uttar Pradesh police, cars crashed into each other due to low visibility even as people were screaming and requesting drivers to slow down.

While some yelled out to others to help pull people out of cars, others were heard saying “Bacchon ko hatao (Move the kids)”. As it happened, several cars ploughed into the existing line of cars as people go into a frenzy to rescue others. Shouts of ‘Chalo Niklo Niklo (Get out, get out)’ are heard in the video as bystanders ask people to vacate the crash site. There are no reports of any casualties as of now.

Cases of accidents due to smog have been reported from Haryana as well. At least eight persons were injured when four vehicles, including two school vans collided in Hisar district. In a separate incident, one biker was killed on the Hansi-Tosham road in the state.

As the air quality in Delhi dropped to ‘severe’ category, the Delhi government has advised people to restrict their outdoor movement. Multiple flights and trains were delayed because of low-visibility in the region.
