Down the way is a tree that took a couple of 90 degree turns during it's growth.
Here's a closer look so you can see things a little better. Click the pic to biggify.
The tree in the back is a sycamore. You can just see the knot [just below the cut] where the branch was that pushed the front tree into the first 90 degree turn.
Then I'm guessing the pressure from the front tree weakened the back branch. Sycamores are notoriously brittle anyway and it probably came off pretty fast.
