In the midst of all this a video went viral on social media sites and WhatsApp groups showing a major pile-up of cars on the Yamuna Expressway due to low visibility caused by smog.
As per various sources it is being said that as many at least 18 vehicles were involved in the accident. Road, rail and air traffic was thrown out of gear as visibility was reduced to nearly zero in the morning. There are approximately 10-20 vehicles that rammed into each other at the Yamuna Expressway between Agra and Mathura. As per the report, no casualty has been reported but some of the vehicles have been badly damaged.
Delhi and surrounding states of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan have been witnessing the wrath of fog and smoke for the past three years.
A thick layer of smog and pollutants in Delhi's air is creating a lot of problems for Delhiites, especially those who are suffering from diseases like Asthama and other breathing problems. Surprisingly, the levels of airborne pollutants are increasing by the day in several parts of the national capital and as per the report, its effects are likened to smoking around 50 cigarettes a day.
The Yamuna Expressway, which connects Delhi with Agra, becomes an accident-prone zone during winters due to low visibility. The fog that hits the region also hits the road, rail and air travel as flights are diverted or cancelled and train schedules disrupted.
"The visibility had reduced drastically due to heavy smog".
