Puzzled Wreck

Hi Friends,

I've recently wrecked my left rear bumper (at the front of the bumper) without understanding why and what happened!?!

It was raining nuts in Singapore when i was turning out from a small road into the main road. As i made the turn, i felt my back wheel mounting over a odd shaped curb.

I got off the car a while later, checked and saw my back left wheel's chipped off a bit at one small section. No scratches on the bumper. Nothing.

But the next morning, i found my left rear bumper, the front portion of it about 10cm wide cracked and totally gone! There is still no scratches from cracked line to the back of the car. I simply cannot believe it.

Did i really wreck the car? Can i be the case that i wrecked the front portion when it was my back wheel that mounted the curb (with no scratches in between) ?

I simply can't digest it.
