The cause of the accident could be the loss of control of the car on a slippery road due to a tropical storm.

Adversity attacks the United States and takes lives: a tropical storm attacked the US state of Alabama and caused an accident involving 18 cars. Ten people, including nine children, died.

The cause of the accident could be the loss of control of the car on a slippery road. A father and a nine-month-old girl died in one of the cars. The other eight victims of the tragedy were on a bus belonging to a shelter for abused children.

A bystander pulled the bus driver to safety and then tried to rescue the children, however the bus was already engulfed in smoke and flames, WTVC television reported.

“Our hearts are so heavy today. Our ranch family has suffered a great loss,” a post from the Alabama Sheriffs Youth Ranches, which manages the non-profit organisation, said on Facebook.

“As many of you may have heard, one of our ranch vehicles was involved in a multiple car accident yesterday afternoon. It is such a horrible tragedy and loss.”

Five other people were hurt in the crash, but none of their injuries were critical, Butler County Sheriff Danny Bond told Reuters news agency.

“It was a horrific scene,” he said separately to the Montgomery Advertiser. “It was the worst traffic accident I’ve witnessed in my life.”

The causes of the accident will be investigated by the National Investigative Council for Transport Safety.

A 24-year-old man and his 3-year-old son were also killed in a tree fall near the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Note that tropical storm Claudette brought torrential rain to much of Alabama, Louisiana, and Georgia.
