An elephant was injured Thursday afternoon after being hit by a pickup truck in a wildlife sanctuary in Chachoengsao province.
A video clip posted to YouTube by Sahai TV showed the pachyderm having difficulty walking following the accident. The elephant was dragging its hind legs to cross a road.
The pickup driver said he could not apply his brakes in time after the elephant suddenly popped out of the forest. The pickup sustained serious damages but the driver was unharmed.
Relevant authorities were alerted to the accident.
