One of the two camels who live in the hills neighboring Bailey Road in Concord has been hit by a vehicle.
The camel escaped earlier today, and was placed back behind the fence at about 3:30 this afternoon. She apparently escaped again at 6:45 on Tuesday night, and was hit by a vehicle, according to the CHP.
She got up and ran, but she is now laying in the roadway.
Traffic is backed up in both directions on Bailey Road. Please use an alternate route until further notice.
UPDATE, 7:07pm: Bailey Road has been shut down in both directions. The camel is back up, running in the roadway. Authorities are trying to catch her.
UPDATE, 9:00pm: The road is now back open. The camel didn’t die.
