Nine children killed in Alabama car crash

A single vehicle caused a chain reaction on Interstate 65, killing 10 people, including nine children, in a crash in Alabama.

Investigators now reveal more about the causes of the chain reaction. Ten people were killed in a multi-vehicle crash in Butler County. Investigators believe a car fell on a bridge near the 138-mile marker on the highway, causing a massive crash involving 15 cars.

Michael Smith, general manager of the Alabama Sheriff’s Youth Ranch, says their van, which had nine people in it, caught fire. It was transporting eight children from Tallapoosa Ranch. They were between 4 and 17 years old. They died at the scene.

The only survivor was the driver and ranch director Candice Gulley. Her two children died in the crash.
