A tanker truck is rear-ended in Louisiana - causing a huge explosion.

It happened Wednesday morning near Baton Rouge.

Police say the tanker stopped on the highway because of a car crash.

That's when an 18-wheeler hit the tanker.

The tanker was hauling about 9,000 gallons of isobutane - similar to propane used in barbecue grills.

No one was hurt in the explosion.
