    without inspecting it I wouldn't like to say...

    could be a few things, i.e. pins were not tightened up? pulled the threads from the pins? worn joint? etc...

    Pulled the bolts out or they came undone? If the flange wasn't seated correctly it could of felt tight but then moved while driving and became loose.
