The question is did the servo arm end up in the new position as a result of flight loads or (rather more likely) as a result of the crash?
It is possible for plastic gears to 'slip'. They can still work but of course the teeth are severely weakened and the servo must be scrapped.
Why it dived in could have be a servo 'glitch' or maybe an aerodynamic overload on something at the highest speed and G loading at the bottom of the loop.
Personally I would not blame the servo.
