About half a dozen vehicles reportedly collided on the Delhi-Noida-Direct (DND) flyway due to less visibility, in the early morning hours of Monday, a day post Diwali.
No injuries have been reported in the collision.
According to the police, about six cars collided on the DND at 6 am on Monday due to less visibility on the road as a thick layer of smog seemed to have enveloped Delhi and National Capital Region post Diwali.
“According to the information we have received, around six cars were damaged in a collision one by one due to zero visibility. All the cars were moving and the collision might have occurred when one of them had applied brakes,” said Amarnath Yadav, station house officer, sector 20.
The police received the information after a passer-by tipped them off. However, they have not registered any case.
“The policemen who were on night shift attended the accident at 9 am when somebody tipped them off. However, they did not register any case as the involved parties had reached to a settlement among themselves,” said a police constable on anonymity.
Residents of Delhi and NCR woke up to a thick layer of haze and smog after an entire night of bursting crackers on Diwali. The city’s air quality reached alarming level on Monday morning as at 7:23am, HT’s air quality index showed a reading of a severe 447. Air pollution level is classified as severe if it is between 401 and 500.
