    A driver on a Louisiana highway had the dashcam rolling when it captures a fuel tanker truck exploding into a huge ball of flames on Thursday.

    Authorities say a dump truck was driving very slowly when a fuel tanker rear-ended it. The collision caused the tanker to erupt into flames.

    The driver of the dump truck was killed and the driver of the fuel truck was injured.

    The tanker was carrying 8,000 gallons of gasoline at the time of the crash.
