WTF happened to this Mercedes?

This is a couple years old, but it’s always fascinated me so I wanted to give it a more permanent place on the web. I was riding my shoddy bicycle on the upper west side of Manhattan in summer 2009 and came across this baffling Mercedes 300TD wagon. What happened? Why was it parallel parked here? And where did the piano that fell on it go?

I’ve just never seen anything like it. Would love to know the story behind this bizarre accident. There were no tall buildings on the side of the street it was parked on, only trees, so if a person jumped onto it from a wall height, the car had since been moved.

    Judging by the debris on the ground around it I’d say a tree came down on it then was cleared away.
