Horror 18-car pileup that killed 10 after Tropical Storm Claudette hit Alabama.

A MOTHER is in a serious condition in hospital today after losing two children in a horror 18-vehicle pile-up that claimed the lives of ten people.

Candice Gulley was driving her son and daughter, four girls who live at an abuse survivor's ranch, and two guests home from a beach vacation on Saturday afternoon when they were involved in the fatal crash.

The Alabama Sheriffs Youth Ranches van she was driving and other vehicles slammed together on a ran-drenched highway as Tropical Storm Claudette brought chaos to the state.

According to WBRZ, the vehicle erupted in flames on the wet Interstate.

Gulley was the only survivor from the vehicle after she was dragged from the flames by a bystander.

She suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized but is now said to be in a stable condition.

The mom was the director of the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch, a non-profit that is home to "Alabama's needy, neglected, or abused, school-aged children."

Michael Smith, chief executive of the nonprofit organization, said he would not share the names and ages of the four girls from the ranch who died in the crash.

He said that Gulley's son and daughter were aged four and 16.

"It was horrendous. I've never seen anything like it in my whole life," Smith said of the crash.

He had been traveling in a seperate vehicle and did not see the crash but visited the aftermath.

According to its website, within the Ranch, "children live in family situations with house parents on working ranches" to teach "Christian principles, hard work, responsibility, manners, and loving-kindness."
