Camel Trapped In Car After Head-On Crash, Both It And Driver Are OK

It’s not every day you see a video of something that just looks like a glitch in the Matrix.

This very unlucky camel was reportedly struck head-on by a car near Bikaner in Rajasthan, India, and was trapped inside the vehicle for four hours, trying desperately to escape. The footage shows the animal writhing around, trying to free itself in a mad panic.

According to The Sun, the roof of the silver Toyota Corolla had to be cut open in order for a group of people to successfully remove the camel from the car. Also, at least one of its legs seems broken, although we take comfort in knowing the animal was cared for after it was freed.

“The camel was horribly entangled,” said Rajat Singh, a resident of Bikaner. “Its head popped out of the sun roof of the car.”

Rajasthan is home to 80% of India’s camel population, which has been declining in recent years. In this case, let’s hope others won’t be as unfortunate as to wonder off and stop right in the middle of a highway.

As for the driver, while he was lucky to survive (the camel smashed through the windshield during the impact), he still needed to be taken to the hospital to have his injuries looked at.

Note: Some viewers might find this footage disturbing

    Its truly amazing that unlike the real world, every click bait car crash video/photo that gets posted nobody gets injured and everyone survives!

    Its truly a miracle.

    I told Rashid that wasn’t the right way to ask a camel for a date. But he told me he did the same with the goats while on vacation in Afghanistan and it worked.

    This happened in Saudi Arabia – not India. Look at the car registration plates, it’s left hand drive (Indian cars are right hand drive) and you can hear Arabic being spoken.

    Poor camel, maybe it wasn’t injured but it was highly traumatized by the looks of things.
