Young elephant dies on Prachin Buri road after being hit by two careless drivers


An elephant was reportedly killed after being hit by two vehicles on Monday as it crossed a road in Prachin Buri along with a big group.

The accident happened at around 7pm on Highway 359 linking Sa Kaeo province to Chachoengsao’s Khao Hin Sorn sub-district.

The dead elephant, aged 1-2 years old, was among a group of pachyderms from Chachoengsao’s Khao Ang Rue Nai Wildlife Sanctuary which always crisscrosses the area.

According to Krisakorn Naenorn, a driver of one of the cars parked at the scene, the elephant was unfortunately hit not once but twice – first by a car that overtook his vehicle and subsequently by another vehicle that was driven carelessly.
