Elephant killed by night bus, Northern Thailand.

Heartbreaking pictures show the male elephant crushed to death with the entire front windscreen of the coach shattered from the impact.
The Elephant died instantly as it was crushed against the windscreen at 60mph.

The elephant, named Phlai Udom, was walking along the same road, protected by a barrier put up to keep elephants safe, but just as the bus passed the elephant, it turned left to go back into a forest.

The bus driven by, Narit Chittong, 45, was driving very fast and had been overtaking at the time when he hit the animal.

Passengers said that they had warned him to slow down but he continued to drive at a fast speed.

Police said Narit was charged with reckless driving, which amounts to a fine of between 400 THB and 1,000 THB (9 GBP to 22 GBP).

Narit will also have compensate the Thailand Elephant Conservation Center which could prove considerably more expensive...
