At least eight people were reportedly killed and many injured in a massive pile-up of as many as 50 vehicles due to dense fog in India’s Northern State of Haryana on Monday.
This mayhem involved a school bus, trucks and several cars.
The accident happened on a highway connecting the Rohtak and Rewari districts of Haryana, near a flyover in Haryana’s Jhajjar district.
All the eight who were reportedly killed, including seven women, were travelling aboard the same vehicle which was heading towards Delhi from Rohtak, said local media reports.
Those injured have been admitted in nearby hospitals where they are being given required medical treatment.
10 of the injured are said to be in critical condition.
Large parts in northern India are currently witnessing dense foggy conditions, particularly during morning and evening hours.
The situation is further aggravated due to the prevailing high levels of air pollution.
