A man was killed and a woman was hospitalized in unknown condition after three vehicles crashed on the westbound 101 Freeway in Sherman Oaks Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A Honda vehicle went out of control and struck a wall before colliding with two other vehicles near Woodman Avenue around 2:45 a.m., CHP Sgt. Robert McIntosh said.
