I guess it tried to rotate a car without the rotary couplers! :P

A non-rotary coupler would just snap off, happens all the time. This is caused by a drunk and/or stoned longshoreman operating the coal dumper, who grabs the end of the locomotive by mistake. And it's not the first time Westshore has done this!
