PALMDALE (CBSLA) — Frank Serafine, an entertainment industry veteran, was identified as the man killed in last week's fatal crash in the Palmdale area. He was 65.

Serafine was struck by a vehicle while standing next to his parked car last Wednesday on Palmdale Boulevard between 12th and 15th streets East. He died at the scene.
