Caledonia Police logoOne person was injured after a pickup truck, which was hauling a camel to a nearby zoo, crashed into a car on Highway G at Highway V on Wednesday, according to the Caledonia Police Department.

A 35-year-old Milwaukee woman was cited for failing to yield the right of way from a stop sign, causing injury at noon.

The woman, who was driving her car southbound on Highway V, told police that her flip-flop got caught and she was not able to stop at the stop sign. The pick-up truck, which was eastbound on Highway G, crashed into the car and went into a ditch on the south side of the road.

The woman, a three-year-old child and the camel were not injured in the crash, according to police.
