Woman's stuck flip-flop led to her car being hit by camel-towing pick-up

While driving on Highway V in Caledonia, Wisconsin, on Wednesday afternoon Kelly Ellison, 28, caught her flip-flop on something and was unable to stop at a stop sign, according to the Caledonia Police Department in Racine County.

That's when she was struck by a pick-up truck towing a camel named Eli. The truck-and-trailer was from Jo-Don Farms, a zoo in Franksville that features camel rides and hundreds of other exotic and familiar animals.

The rig went into the ditch on the south side of the road. The driver, Nathan Gaines, 35, suffered a possible broken leg and was complaining of back pain, according to police.

Ellison and a 3-year-old boy in her car were not injured. Neither was the camel, police said. Ellison was cited for failing to yield the right of way at a stop sign, and causing injury.
