Two teenage brothers were killed and another person was injured Friday in a two-vehicle collision in Palmdale, authorities said.

The brothers were in a Toyota Camry when it collided with a Buick at Avenue R and Lasker Avenue about 5 p.m., said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. Ron Shaffer.

The younger brother was a minor and a high school student. The older brother was 19, Shaffer said.

They were pronounced dead at the scene. It was unclear which brother was driving.

The person in the Buick was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries.
