A 57-year-old woman was killed while over two dozen people were injured in a pile up of about 25 cars on Yamuna Expressway due to dense fog . All the vehicles were damaged in the accident which happened at 27km from the zero point on the Greater Noida-Agra carriageway. The pile-up and fog also resulted in an hour-long traffic jam on the expressway.

The pile up occured around 8am, said an official of the company operating Yamuna Expressway. “Despite zero visibility on Sunday morning, some vehicles were speeding. The pile up occurred after a Honda City car crashed into a slow moving truck. Other cars rammed into it soon after. Our team quickly responded and conducted the rescue operation. We informed the police too,” the official said.
