Jefferson Parish authorities say two people were killed in a Sunday morning crash in Metairie.

Two others were taken to a hospital.

The accident happened just before 7:30 a.m. on Airline Drive near North Atlanta Street. 

Neighbors told WWL-TV an 18-wheeler was parked on the side of Airline and the car slammed into the back of it. 

A man who identified himself as a family member of the truck driver said the driver parked his truck on the side of the road overnight and walked across the street to a family member's home to get some sleep. 

A portion of Airline Drive heading west was closed as a result of the accident. The street reopened about 10:30 a.m. 

No further details were available at this time.
