Was this car being pulled before this accident with a chain? Look at the bent front axle where the chain was attached.
I was wondering that myself from the other thread. There's no mud or silt on the car and the top looks clean so how could it be a victim of a flood. I think it was just a wreck (bent axle). The chain looks like they intend to up-right the car by pulling on the chain. Bad idea there! It looks like the car would tumble down the slop if they did.

Someone was attempting to straighten the front axle and it went horribly wrong?
I also wonder why the undercarriage of the passenger side(from the frame rail out to the running board) looks so much wider than the drivers side? Is it the angle playing with my eyes??
Apparently, since the fence is OK it didn't go down that way. It looks like it rolled down the slope at the lower portion of the photo and flipped when it bottomed out. The chain could have been an attempt to recover it before it went fully in. It obviously wasn't done after it turned turtle. No way to pull it from that position & bend the axle in that direction.
Underneath the top of the car is the bridge deck that has collapsed as the car was almost across the creek. The car wold have dropped down to the frame and under carriage but was on the embankment and not down as we see it now. Using a team of horses (maybe) they pulled on the chain bending the axle but not pulling the car free of its entrapment. Releasing the tension on the chain the car flips backward and it is in the situation we see in the picture. Just my view, your mileage may vary.
