Assunto:  Cracked up = damaged to some extent
 
Mensagem:  When something "has cracked up", it has crashed.  It has suffered damage, probably extensive damage.  If you crack up your car, it doesn't have a dent in the fender.  Probably, it doesn't have a fender.  Maybe you can't even drive it home.  I can't imagine, for example, an airplane being able to fly after a crack up.
