LOUISIANA (WFLA) – Dashboard video captured a deadly fuel truck explosion in Louisiana last week.

A driver had the camera rolling while driving on the interstate Thursday, and caught the moment a fuel tanker truck headed in the opposite direction exploded into a huge ball of flames.

Authorities say the fuel tanker truck rear-ended a slow-moving dump truck.

The dump truck driver was killed. The tanker truck driver was injured.

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