A man hit an elephant with his car, so the elephant went ahead and stomped both the car and the man to death.
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.
I'm Team Elephant on this one. There were warning signs telling drivers to be careful and watch for elephants. He didn't. That was his bad.
