It looks like the upper shock mount was violently ripped out while still bolted in place. It also looks like one side was pried downwards thus pushing the other side upwards while it was being ripped out from the underside of the car. I don't see how it could have been done with the shock still in place. In any case it was not the result of either normal or abnormal driving. If I had to guess, I would say the shock was removed and then someone pried out the upper shock mount with a crowbar while the mounting nuts were still in place.
If your lucky,a good body shop might be able to repair the damage without cutting out and welding in a new mount from a junked car. Anyway, good luck with the repair and be thankful that it didn't result in an accident.
As an afterthought, you might want the check with your insurance company. It just might be covered.
