A Chinese couple were injured Monday when an elephant overturned their car inside South Africa’s Kruger National Park, an official said.

“It is not yet clear why the elephant turned aggressive,” said spokesman William Mabasa, adding that the male driver was airlifted to hospital.

Mabasa urged visitors to the park to be on the lookout for “huge animals and try not to get too close whenever they see one approaching on the road.”

Wild animals in the two million hectare park sometimes attack people, but no fatalities have been reported in recent years.

Rangers had to fire shots to scare the beast.

Earlier this year a local woman was gored by a rhino while she and her partner posed for photographs with the endangered animal, after getting out of their vehicle.
