JUDY WOODRUFF, CNN ANCHOR: This story coming in from the Associated Press out of Sacramento, California: Authorities there saying at least three people have died in a fiery crash involving three tractor trailers on Route 99, south of Sacramento. These pictures just in to CNN.

The California Highway Patrol says at least three trucks were involved, two of them engulfed in flames. And they said that explosions were reported to be coming from at least one of the trucks. We don't know the contents. Drivers are being asked to avoid the area. The highway is closed in both directions. All lanes, officials say, likely will be several hours before the highway reopens. They are also saying that this crash that took place just about an hour ago may have been due to fog in that part of California.

Once again, three people dead after this terrible crash on the highway.
