Crash kills Alabama camel

(WVTM) A 19-year-old Alabama man is recovering after striking a camel with his truck.

The camel belonged to a couple from Etowah County who own exotic animals.

They were walking the animal Monday night when she stopped in the middle of the road and wouldn’t budge.

One of the owners saw the truck coming and tried to get the driver to stop, but it didn’t work.

The camel was taken to Auburn University, where she was euthanized after being looked at by veterinarians.

The truck driver suffered minor injuries. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
