A teen driver got into an accident after getting distracted by his phone. Unfortunately it’s a common enough story. So why is this particular incident newsworthy? He hit a camel…in Sardis City, Alabama.
The unnamed teenage driver was looking down at his phone at the time of the accident and when he looked up, he realized he’d hit a camel. It turns out the animal was being walked back to its home at Turk’s Bama Bucks wildlife refuge by a trainer.
The driver only suffered minor injuries, and the trainer wasn’t hurt, but the camel had to be put down as a result of its injuries.
