KCRA reports one person has died in a crash this morning that shut down all lanes of Highway 12 west of Interstate 5, police said.  Officers did say it will be hours before Highway 12 is reopened.  Two separate crashes in the same area prompted the blockage, which extends from I-5 to State Route 160.  Five vehicles appear to be involved, the CHP said.  It appears that a tractor trailer may have been involved in a head-on accident, early reports indicate.  Both crash scenes are on Highway 12 just a few miles west of I-5, CHP spokesman Rich Wetzel told KCRA 3.
