    After car hits Thai elephant, animal kills driver

    After car hits Thai elephant, animal kills driver

    Pro-tip: don't run into a wild elephant with a really small car.

    Police say a man was killed by a wild elephant after his speeding car hit the animal near a national park in northeastern Thailand.

    Police Lt. Col. Kemchat Paedkaew says the accident occurred at dusk Wednesday on a small road that has signs telling drivers to beware of wild animals that sometimes stray from Khao Yai National Park.

    He said the driver was not from the area and failed to slow down when he encountered the elephant. When the vehicle struck the elephant’s back legs, the animal responded by stomping on the car, destroying the engine and killing the driver.


    Kemchat says up to two people are killed by elephants each year in areas surrounding the park.

    Saw a video of an elephant with its trunk up in a tree pulling down foliage to eat and a Rhino putting its head down and running and ramming into him, the video stopped then showed the rhino dead with the elephant turning and moving away.

    I don't have a problem with the actions of the elephant. I just hope Thai officials don't decide it is a threat and put it down.
