Default Beware of camels

This was a Mercedes C63 before it hit a camel. Miraculously, the occupant survived.

My sis and her husband hit a deer once , going 65mph on the freeway . Car was Mazda 929 , it was night and incident was either in Illinois or Wisconsin. Car was totalled and both were rushed to hospital by Ambulance. Ended up being ok.

Depends on how much the camel is worth and who the owner is. One of the million dirham beauty contestant ones is unlikely to be wandering around.

yes it costs you more to hit a camel, then a tree, then a human being.

A good dent man will sort that out.

I remember doing a visa run years ago and seeing a camel that had been headlamped wrapped around the central reservation, not a pretty sight - god only knows what happened to the car that hit it.
