What the? How do you miss seeing a giraffe?

"An accident in Kruger National Park involving a giraffe, a minibus and a rental car has resulted in a Swiss man being airlifted to hospital.

The incident occurred on Sunday morning south of the Mopani area of the park. A taxi bus carrying 13 people collided with a giraffe on the road. The animal then collapsed on top of a rental vehicle driven by a Swiss man. He was seriously injured and had to be airlifted by helicopter after being attended to by paramedics on site. He is currently in an intensive care unit and will likely be shifted to another hospital in Johannesburg.

His companion and two minibus passengers suffered minor injuries. The giraffe was killed in the collision."

Quite a story to tell his grand-kids, "a giraffe collapsed on my car".

Guess the taxi-driver will have some problems keeping his liscence, aren't giraffes one of those things you actually go to Krüger park for?
