Something was seriously wrong with this XC70

Coming home this morning after dropping my son off at school, I noticed was alarmed at a P3 XC70 next to me with a spare that looked somehow very... off.

The camber was way way out. It wasn't wobbling: the wheel was apparently on the hub ok. It was just cambered way out. I'm guessing they hit a curb hard, popped the tire, and put the spare on with significant damage to the suspension.

Sort of looks like that rear tire is working hard and kicking up some dust.

It was idling, stopped at the light. Exhaust maybe...
