On Monday morning, dense fog led to the collision of several vehicles on the Lucknow-Agra Expressway in Unnao resulting in serious injuries to more than a dozen people said police.

The incident took place near Bangarmau in Unnao district. 

"Pile-up of around a dozen vehicles took place early this morning on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway in Jogikot village under Bangarmau police station. Around a dozen people have sustained injuries in the accident," said Additional Superintendent of Police Ambrish Bhadauria.

"The injured persons were administered first aid at the community health centre in Bangarmau, and were subsequently sent home," he said.

This is the second major vehicular accident reported from the state due to reduced visibility after a video went viral on November 8 showing several speeding cars ramming into one another, while people on the footpath were seen shouting and requesting the drivers to slow down on the Agra-Noida Yamuna Expressway.
