WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. (KABC) -- One of three men killed in a fiery multi-car crash in Woodland Hills was identified Monday.

Authorities identified the man as Mubarak Alqashout, 20, of Woodland Hills. He, along with two other men, were killed when a Ford Mustang he was in crashed into a car exiting a gas station in the 20900 block of Ventura Boulevard near De Soto Avenue.
