The week started in National Capital with dense smog canopying the roads, leaving the visibility reduced to almost zero. Advisories have been issued in public interest, requesting people to take proper safety measures before leaving the house. The vog masks might protect your lungs from the tormenting effects of smog, but what about the negligible visibility on the busy roads of the city? This horrifying incident of last year, in which 18 cars are seen colliding on Yamuna Expressway was been captured on camera. And the video is scary enough to send a chill down your spine.
In the video, several vehicles are already collided, while people try to escort the passengers safely out of them. But the collision doesn’t stop there. Two more cars, an EECO van and a Maruti Swift Dzire are seen colliding to the already existing pile of damaged vehicles. So far, seven people have been injured following the incident.
There is no confirmation yet when this accident occurred. The Indian Express reported this video in an article about a pile-up on Yamuna Expressway which left one person dead.
Smog is the real killer. The fact that it is taking toll on our respiratory health is not the sole reason. This video ascertains that smog is not a problem to be overlooked. Proper safety measures are needed to be taken under such conditions.
