A three-car accident on the Ambala-Chandigarh highway in Haryana state killed at least seven people and injured four others on Saturday, December 29. Police attributed the accident to a speeding car and poor visibility due to dense fog in the region. The accident took place in the early morning (local time) of Saturday in Ambala district, approximately 45 km (28 mi) south of Chandigarh. Dense fog and associated adverse driving conditions are forecast to persist across northern India in the coming days and weeks, including in Haryana, Punjab, Chandigarh, Delhi.
Forecast dense fog resulted in the cancelation of more than 60 train routes in northern India from December through February.
Individuals in northern India are advised to monitor local weather forecasts and anticipate adverse driving conditions, including limited visibility, and plan transportation routes accordingly.
