nothing to do with being hit, thats broken due to crap construction and fatigue.

the axle tube wall is thin anyway, it certainly doesnt need weakening with pigeon poo welding, and Im guessing that the clamp part is possibly welded to the axle, it looks like it is?? is the clamping part properly sized? could it have been crimping the tube as well?

this will have weakened it, along with the other brace or mount in close proximity.

new axle time and also time to have a rethink about the mounting
