(Scroll down for video) A family is lucky to be alive after escaping an attack by a wild elephant.

The elephant was seen on video walking along a road in Thailand, before crushing the hood of a car.

The elephant was seen trying to situate itself on the front of the vehicle. The weight of the large animal partially crushed the hood of the car and shattered the windshield as it struggled to keep its balance, the video showed.

The family recorded the video at the Khao Yai National Park, near Bangkok.

The elephant was seen looking into the car before climbing onto the hood. A crushing sound was heard as the animal moved onto the car.

Luckily, no one was injured during the incident.

Officials from the Khao Yai National Park, explained that the aggressive behavior of the elephant was probably the result of the mating season.
