Vehicle Collision Caused by Heavy Fog Grips Agra-Lucknow Expressway

A dense blanket of fog blanketing the Agra-Lucknow expressway resulted in a significant collision involving several vehicles, causing injuries to numerous commuters.

The accident occurred near the Jharna Nala flyover, where approximately seven to eight vehicles collided due to low visibility caused by the thick fog.

An eyewitness recounted the incident, stating, "Some vehicles crashed into each other after the vehicle in front of me abruptly applied brakes. Consequently, I had to brake suddenly, leading to a chain reaction involving three to four vehicles behind me."

Elsewhere, in Uttar Pradesh's Bagpat district, reduced visibility due to dense fog led to a collision between two vehicles, resulting in several injuries.

Another incident occurred on the Bareli-Sultanpur Highway in Uttar Pradesh's Raebareli, where a high-speed truck collided with a house due to dense fog. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, but the collision resulted in property damage, as confirmed by an eyewitness.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecasts continued dense fog over the northwest and parts of central India for the next three to four days.

"Dense to very dense fog is expected to persist over Northwest & parts of adjoining Central India for the next 3-4 days," stated the IMD in a recent update.

Moreover, as winter maintains its grip on North India, tourists visiting the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, faced challenges due to the thick fog enveloping the city, significantly reducing visibility.

The dense fog extended its reach to various parts of North India, causing disruptions in morning traffic. In the national capital, Delhi, the thick fog posed a challenge to the public.

According to the Meteorological Department's recent observations at 5:30 AM today, visibility was extremely low in various cities, such as Amritsar (airport)-0, Patiala-25; Srinagar-25; Bareilly-25, Lucknow-25, Prayagraj-25 & Varanasi-50, Jhansi-200; Ganganagar-50, Kota-500; Delhi- Safdarjung-50; Delhi (Palam)-125.
