Did something heavy fall on it? Looks sort of like it was crushed from above.

Truck? Looks like the driver jumped on the brakes at high speed and the pay load slipped forward!

I think it was T boned from the right side. It appears for have been pushed way over partly into the ditch. The drivers side wheel peeled off first and was left laying on the passenger side (near side of photo). Right front fender is also lifted straight up. Must have been really hit hard and fast by a larger vehicle. The other vehicle may have been removed before the picture was taken. Just my take on the picture.

I think a horse got mad and kicked it. :-)

Thanks for enhancing the photo Steve.
The title said car but I think it really is a truck.
Being near a bridge says it is near a river where many times there is a railroad. Perhaps this was caused by a collision with a train.
A good detective could find out. It is from Gettysburg Pa.

Rocks in lower left corner look like crushed stone as in railroad ballast!

What I find interesting is, whatever did the damage, did it in a way that tore the spindle from the axle with out damaging the spokes of the wheel.

It is very possible that the truck hit the side of a train and not a train hitting the truck. It also managed to lose it's right side drive chain in the process or that may have caused the accident.

It says "Auburn (?)" on the side of what is left of the truck box. I don't think it is an Auburn truck, although they did build some around that time. Could help identify the location or company?
Neat little truck? Was.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
