I agree with PDQ...this is dumb luck unrelated to the anchor. You can be killed in a parked car if a piano falls on it, but is it a 'car accident"?

I suppose if you had a trip line, you might have been able to "spill" the anchor to clear it, but maybe not. You were just fortunate to have the skill and foresight to get to a place to sort things out.

Check the anchor itself for damage.
