When I went to a Saab training school in Kansas City, one of the instructors told us a story. He was working in Chicago when a snow/ice storm hit. As he took a freeway exit the car slid off the side of the road and down a steep embankment. The wheels hit something and caused the car to roll over. It did a complete 360 turning first on the passenger side, then the roof, the driver's side, and finally landed back on its tires. The guy was pretty shaken up, but not injured, and the motor was still running!
He knew he would need an accident report since he was driving a car owned by Saab, and it just so happened that there was a State Police substation at the exit. So, he drove to the station, got out of the car (doors still operated correctly) and walked in. The desk sergeant wanted to know where the car was so he could send a unit to it. He was told it was in the parking lot so he went outside, expecting to see the car on a wrecker. When he didn't see a wrecker, just the Saab in the lot he became irate and told the instructor that he was going to be arrested tor attempting to file a false report. When he looked closer, he could see all the crumpled panels and did an accident report for the guy. The instructor drove the car home and back to work the next day. Saab kept the car in its damaged state and shipped it back to Sweden for evaluation. The instructor got a new car. ☺️

This might be a colloquialisim, (I'm in the southern USA so even the 'real' Yankees will have to cut me some slack,) but it looks like 'The tail started wagging the dog.'

Meaning the trailer probably began swaying uncontrollably, up until the unit jacknifed.

I too, had figured it was a accident from the hitch. But, no one mentioned it had to be a Australian trailer as there is not a door on the right hand side of the trailer like we would have here in the USA.

It is indeed the result of an accident somewhere on the Prince's Highway in Southern New South Wales , Australia. It is the freshwater holding tank that has become dislodged and sits next to the Saab .
I've no idea how it happened either , though Saabs are front wheel drive and aren't too good at towing , at least that is what I found when I owned a 99E .

Ever seen the race where you pull a camper? Might have been practicing and got a little too heavy footed in a turn.

I guess that is the compact model. A bit hard on suspension but real easy to maneuver.

Was that a wreck? I first thought it was set up there in a junkyard or something.then I saw the broken hitch,the tongue bent down,the trunk bashed down,and the bumper bent up.I still can't imagine the circumstances that would lead to it ending up like that.

I thought so too, somebody sat it up there.

But looking at the damage on the back and trunk, looks like maybe a hard jack knife, somehow ended up balanced on top!

Like to have seen that!

And,what's the tank laying next to it?Fresh or gray water tank? Sewer holding tank? Fuel tank? Or,maybe just a tank sitting that has no relation to the car and camper.That is what made me think junkyard,just extra stuff laying around.I do think it was an accident though,a freak jack knife situation.
