I would be willing to wager that the pictured drain plug/oilpan had been impacted on something and cracked ( with no leakage) prior to attempting to remove the plug.

Exactly what I was thinking - vulnerable, exposed low point on the oil pan, combined with famously rough and uneven Turkish roads.

Actually, the oil was already long gone from all the leaking seals and gaskets.   The scrap metal dealer ruptured the empty oil pan while dragging it up on the rollback.

This reminds of a recent discussion in my plant.  Two production employees were watching a maintenance tech change a stone wheel on a pedestal grinder.  The maintenance tech reports to me.  The two plant employees said that they wanted to be able to change their own wheels.  I was doubtful since I have seen their 'work.'  So I reminded them that the wheel nut was left-hand thread and took a special left-hand wrench.  The seemed to accept this without question (proving my point).  I noticed that the maintenance tech had to wipe the tears of laughter away.

I can't tell you how much fun I had over the years by walking up to the tool counter at a Sears asking (with a smile, of course) where they kept their left handed wrenches.

 

The folks that knew what they were doing would grin and say something smart back ("They are right beside the board stretchers," was the best one).  Those that didn't would start pecking away at the computer or racing around the department looking for them.

That's why Dodge wheel studs have an L or and R stamped on the end so that you know which way to turn them.

Only on the left side.
On my brothers 1941 Powerwagon we spent a few hours trying to get the wheels off just after he got it.  Then we noticed the "L" on the stud.

That just means you need a set of Vise Grips.

 

And make sure you have needle nosed Vise Grips in a couple different sizes.  They are the tool of true professionals.
