A significant collision involving 20 vehicles occurred on the Yamuna Expressway in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday, attributed to poor visibility caused by dense fog in the Delhi-NCR region.
The Yamuna Expressway, stretching from Greater Noida to Agra, witnessed a major traffic pile-up early on Wednesday due to the thick fog that enveloped the Delhi-NCR area.
At least 20 vehicles were involved in the incident as visibility dropped drastically, reaching almost zero in certain areas.
The adverse weather conditions persisted with fog and winter prevailing in Delhi-NCR and the surrounding regions.
In response to the situation, the Greater Noida police were dispatched to the scene to manage and control the aftermath of the collision.
Additionally, the dense fog led to disruptions in transportation, affecting 110 flights and 25 trains in the morning.
Delhi Airport experienced delays, impacting both domestic and international flights, as revealed by data from the Flight Information Display System (FIDS) at Delhi Airport. The Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) in Delhi forecasted a clear sky for the national capital but anticipated no relief from dense fog until December 29 (Friday), as conditions remained conducive to fog formation.
