UP fog kills 1, injures 14 in traffic accident

One person was killed and 14 others were injured in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr and Sitapur areas on Tuesday morning due to low visibility due to thick fog, police said.

A truck driver was killed and six others were injured in a multi-vehicle collision on the Bulandshahr-Aligarh road under the jurisdiction of the Arnia police station in Bulandshahr, they said.

The injured were taken to hospital and the damaged vehicle was moved off the road with the help of a crane, they said.

At about 6 a.m., a tire of a pickup truck burst and the driver lost control of the vehicle. As a result, a bus, a coupe and some other small vehicles behind a small truck collided with each other, said the deputy superintendent of the (rural) Bajrang Bali Chaurasia.

A truck driver was seriously injured in the incident and later died in hospital, he said.

Two of the injured were being treated in Aligarh and Bulandshahr, the ASP said, adding that some others with minor injuries continued their journey.

Eight people were injured when the van they were traveling in collided with a stationary truck in Sitapur due to poor visibility, police said.

Four passengers were seriously injured in the accident near the village of Kalli, which is under the jurisdiction of the Misrikh police station, they said.

Police said the van hit the parked van from behind as the fog reduced visibility on the road.

They said the van driver and three passengers were seriously injured and rushed to the Community Health Center (CHC).

Dr Prakhar Srivastava of CHC Misrikh said four of the injured were taken to Lucknow for treatment in serious condition.
