It's always sad to see a broken Z.  I don't see that one being repaired :(

 

It looks like the driver learnt the hard way that wide tyres (and RWD) aren't a good combination when there's a lot of standing water.  Tread depth has a lot to play too - just because the tyres are legal doesn't mean they're going to be any good at displacing a lot of water in a short time when they're getting worn down.

 

I think it's a timely reminder that in very wet weather you should probably one of the slowest cars on the road and not one of the fastest.

Considering how hard it is to simply run and stop on wet roads and pavements without slipping, it's amazing how tyres keep us on the roads safely at speeds of 70mph.
Hopefully the owner gets back on the road with another nice Nissan.
