Dense smog led to a 24-car pile-up on the Agra-Noida Yamuna Expressway, killing one and injuring at least six.
The incident happened this morning near milestone 125, close to Hataura village, when a truck collided with a defunct car.
The truck turned turtle, and unable to see in the smog, other cars kept ramming into each other.
The deceased hasn't been identified yet.

Heavy smog continues to engulf Delhi
Delhi-NCR is battling the heaviest smog in years, with primary schools being shut down and children being asked to avoid outdoor activities. Meanwhile, offices and college goers had to face many problems due to low visibility on the roads.
While many opted for traveling by metro instead of cars, people who took their cars were also careful while driving.

Similar pile-up reported in January last year
A similar pile-up, but of much higher number where 50 vehicles crashed into one another on the Yamuna Expressway, was reported in January last year. The pile-up was caused by heavy fog, and killed a 57-year old woman, injuring over two dozen people.
