Four people were killed and several others were injured in separate accidents due to fog across Uttar Pradesh, the PTI reported on Wednesday.

The accidents took place in various parts of Uttar Pradesh due to dense fog the previous night and Wednesday morning, as per the PTI.

Two of them were women, who died in a collision in Baghpat district.

In Unnao, adjoining the state capital, a man was killed and at least 15 others injured in a pile-up of three buses, one container truck, and two cars on the Agra-Lucknow expressway last night.

Bangarmau Police Station SHO Gyananedra Singh said, "a bus collided with a container truck from behind due to low visibility caused by a heavy fog. Two other buses later collided with the bus followed by two cars leading to a pileup, as per the PTI.

"The accident occurred on the intervening night of Dec 26 and 27."

According to police, the victim of the collision was 50-year-old Vijay Kumar, and the 15 injured were all from the buses. They have been admitted to a hospital.

In Baghpat district of Western UP, two women were killed and 11 others injured when the van they were travelling in hit a truck in an area under the Khekra Police Station.

"A passenger van collided with a truck on the Eastern Peripheral Expressway during the wee hours of Wednesday," SHO Rajiv Singh said, according to the PTI.

Seema, 44, and Mandeep, 38, were killed in the accident. The injured were rushed to a hospital.

"It appears that the accident occurred because the van driver failed to notice the truck due to fog," the SHO said.

In Agra, around a dozen vehicles piled-up on a national highway, leading to the death of one person and injuries to six others, who were admitted to the SN Medical College for treatment, according to police.

The incident took place around 3 am on the Shahdara Bridge in the Trans-Yamuna police station area due to fog, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Agra City) Suraj Kumar Rai said.

"Of the seven victims, one died and four are still undergoing treatment at the hospital. All damaged vehicles have been removed from the road except for one whose axle broke down and needs to be repaired. Normal traffic has resumed on the stretch," Rai said.

Among the vehicles which crashed in the Agra pile-up was a pickup truck carrying roosters. A video purported to be of the site showed locals running away with roosters.

The police officer said there is no complaint yet in that matter.

In Etawah, three people were injured after being hit by a truck on the Agra-Kanpur National Highway under Jaswantnagar area of the district Wednesday morning.

According to police, the three were standing on a roadside when they were hit by a truck.

They were admitted to a hospital, where one of them is said to be in a critical state.
