November 24, 2011- All southbound lanes of I-5 were closed for a couple hours Thursday morning after a fatal crash, west of Bakersfield.
A family of seven was headed north in an SUV when the vehicle flipped over onto the grassy field in the center median, and finally coming to rest in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5, just south of Bear Mountain Boulevard.
Two people in the SUV died at the scene of the accident, one of them a teenage girl. One person with major injuries was medi-flighted to the hospital. The four other occupants were also hurt and taken by ambulance to the hospital for treatment.
The CHP are investigating the cause of the crash.
