Can someone please clarify if "was broken down" here means that the girl was really upset, desperate, had a mental collapse?
Now, the people she loves most appear to her in vivid dreams. Two
years ago, her grandmother came to her. In the dream, Stephanie
was broken down on the side of the road, and as she waited there
for help, her grandmother and grandfather pulled up. Muh got out
of the car and walked right up to Stephanie and squeezed her tight.
Her car was broken down.
