An Alabama youth services group suffered a devastating loss Saturday when 10 people, including nine children, were killed in a car crash. The incident involved a vehicle from the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch, which crashed into a car carrying a 29-year-old father, Cody Fox, and his 9-month-old baby. Police said the accident involved 18 vehicles and that four or five people suffered injuries, per AL.com. Butler County Coroner Wayne Garlock said the crash was likely caused by hydroplaning, as the county was hit by a powerful tropical storm on Saturday. The Girls Ranch is a youth services group that serves as a foster home for abused or abandoned girls.
“Our hearts are heavy today. Our ranch has suffered great loss. As some of you may have hear, one of our ranch vehicles was involved in a multiple car accident this afternoon,” the ranch wrote on Facebook. “Please send prayers our way as we navigate this difficult time.”
