Though police denied any death in the incident, an eyewitness claimed that one person was killed in the mishap.

Yamuna Expressway management said they have put up display boards for drivers to drive slow and use fog lights during bad weather. As there was no buildings around the 165 kilometre stretch, the fog was dense. "We appeal to the drivers to drive carefully on the Yamuna Expressway and Noida-Greater Noida expressway," said the SP. "Eleven injured accident victims were admitted today (Monday)," said doctors at Kailash Hospital.
