A North Hollywood teen was killed early today and three women were injured in a three-vehicle crash on the southbound Golden State (5) Freeway in Santa Clarita.
A Honda Civic, in which an 18-year-old woman was a passenger, ran out of gas and stalled in one of the left lanes of the freeway near Rye Canyon Road about 12:40 a.m., according to a California Highway Patrol investigator.
A 43-year-old Pacoima woman driving a Toyota Tercel then rear-ended the stalled Civic and a third car then hit the Tercel, the investigator said.
The driver of the Civic, a 46-year-old North Hollywood woman, suffered minor injuries.
Her 18-year-old passenger was taken to Henry Mayo Hospital where she died about three hours later, according to a report issued by the CHP.
The Tercel's driver sustained minor injuries, according to the CHP.
The driver of the third car blacked out temporarily and was hospitalized with moderate injuries, according to a fire official.
No arrests were made.
