An accident near Haldirams on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway led to a massive jam on the highway for over two hours. Long line of vehicles were seen from Kherki Daula to Narsinghpur, and, later, it extended till Hero Honda Chowk.
The traffic police said around 11.30am, a white Audi car collided with a canter, while trying to avoid another car overtaking from the left. The front wheels of the car got stuck under the canter making it difficult for the expressway concessionaire to remove the vehicles.
Problems compounded when the owner of the Gurgaon registered Audi refused to let highway officials use the normal crane to remove the car from the accident spot. “The vehicle could be shifted to the side lane after a hydra crane was booked by the owner,” a Skylark official said.
Police said it took almost an hour more to normalise the situation as only two lanes were operational while removing the vehicle. To ease the situation, police got the toll barriers lifted for an hour.
Dilip Yadav of Kherki Daula said, “The distance I cover in 10 minutes took me over two hours because of the accident.”
