Southbound lanes of Interstate 5 through Kern County were closed after a deadly accident Tuesday evening.The CHP says four big-rigs and seven cars were involved in the crash, southwest of Bakersfield.

A massive dust storm reduced visibility to zero ... sending one semi slamming into another car, and causing a fiery chain reaction crash.

Three people died, and several others were hurt including a fifteen-month old child. Hazmat teams and accident investigators were called out, and are still on scene now.

A detour through the area has been set up.
