Two people were killed in a two-vehicle collision in Wilmington Thursday night.

The collision occurred just after 8:15 p.m. in the area of 1753 N. Avalon Boulevard, near Banning High School, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

A truck and a sedan were involved in the crash. Video of the aftermath showed flames and smoke spouting from one of the cars.

Witnesses told NBC4 on Thursday that the truck went airborne at one point during the crash.
