GREATER NOIDA: Dense smog hampered visibility and led to three instances of pile-ups, involving over 20 vehicles, today on the Yamuna expressway resulting in injuries to at least 22 people, police said.
According to Dankaur station house officer (SHO) Farmud Ali, at around 8.30 am a Scorpio vehicle on way from Agra side to Noida rammed into a construction material bag that was placed on the expressway near an under-construction bridge.
