Usually a CV joint doesn’t break that easy and this fail can possibly be caused due to wear and tear caused by the age. This can also happen if the car has been taken on very rough roads where the roadway debris has hit the car hard. However, in your case it seems there is another underlying issue therefore, you should check if the tripod is extending so much so that it is being pulled too much. For the same, you should get the car checked by a reliable mechanic as well because a CV joint does not keep breaking again and again. Also, the joints can get broken in case you drive the car too rashly especially while going in a circle (like in your case, you mentioned that you took a full left circle in reverse.)
