A video showing a massive pile-up on what appears to be the Yamuna Expressway has gone viral on social media sites and on various Whatsapp groups. There is no confirmation as to when this accident occurred. A Youtuber uploaded this video on 7 November.

The video shows vehicles plowing into each other, with drivers losing control owing to reduced visibility. People can be heard yelling and screaming, asking others to exit their vehicles before other cars crash into them.

Three Pile-Ups of Over 20 Vehicles in One Day

Dense smog hampered visibility and led to three instances of pile-ups, involving over 20 vehicles, on Wednesday on the Yamuna expressway resulting in injuries to at least 22 people, police said.

According to Dankaur station house officer Farmud Ali, at around 8.30 am a Scorpio vehicle on way from Agra side to Noida rammed into a construction material bag that was placed on the expressway near an under-construction bridge.

A bus moving behind the Scorpio collided with it and in a series ten more cars piled up resulting in several persons getting injured, he said.

In another incident, on the Noida to Agra side of the expressway, eight vehicles rammed into each other in a series. Around eight persons were injured, he said.

"At the time of the accident, there was dense fog and visibility was just 10 meters. The rescue team too had to drive with care," Ali said.

In yet another incident in Jewar, six vehicles collided, he said, adding that no injuries were reported in the collision.
