The seven-tonne 34-year-old bull elephant, known as Duea, wagged his tail before lying his front legs across the car in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand, on Tuesday afternoon.

The wild animal managed to break the car’s rear window, roof and body of the car during the brief rough and tumble.
Eventually the driver managed to get a speedy getaway – in his now slightly crushed car.
Drivers are advised to keep 100ft away from elephants in the national park.
It’s not just elephants that drivers are being warned to be wary of rhinos, as a keeper at the Serengeti Park safari park in Hodenhagen in northern Germany recently found out.
The keeper was driving in the park when a 30-year-old bull, named Kusini, started slamming his horn into the body of the car.
