I’m assuming he got hit by the car, hence his broken leg.. him being so heavy smashed the front when he flopped on the hood.. everyone hopped out, he struggled because how broken his leg was and got himself unfortunately tangled.. I wasn’t there tho— BB 🏁 (@BrockBrown) July 9, 2018
He assumed that the camel "got hit by the car," and smashed the hood when he landed on it. Brown added:

Earlier this year, a 13-year-old boy was injured, and an 8-year-old lost his life in Israel when the car they were traveling in collided with a camel.
Their two other brothers and father only sustained minor scrapes and bruises, while the mother was treated with severe head injuries.
