Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Peugeot 206 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 40000 miles

I was told that a piston had broken and wrecked the block on this Peugeot 206. I was driving along at about 30mph and the "bang". To make a long story short. Could the damage to the piston have been caused by impact or damage to any peripheral parts failure? This is key to my insurance claim, I have read up on other causes but I have to try to prove an impact theory on the road. Any way I can suggest something hit the engine or its parts?Thanks very much in advance.

A good insurance claim inspector will be able to tell if the damage was caused by an impact or from wear and tear or neglect of oil etc etc.
