Drivers are reporting a dramatic vehicle fire on the I-310 between the Mississippi River and Boutte in St. Charles Parish.  Officials say one of the vehicles is a fuel truck that flipped over in a crash.

Louisiana State Police say one person died and another was seriously injured.

Listener video from Annie Howat showed the aftermath of what some other drivers described as an explosion.
