First 2010 BMW 5-Series Crash? What Happened to the Roof?

Here's one of the first crashed 2010 BMW 5-Series [codenamed F10] to be captured on camera. The photograph - courtesy of F10post forum member 'MarkE90M3' -shows a 5-Series with French license plates and damages on the right side and more importantly, the roof which at a first glance looks like it caved in / collapsed.

However, that doesn't appear to be the case as the window pillars seem intact. As one commenter on the forum pointed out, it could be that the firefighters chopped the roof off to free the car's passengers.

Then again, from what we can tell by looking at this single picture, the damages to the car aren't that bad to justify cutting the roof off.
