Corrupted cache crashes the whole site?

I have a site to which a user uploaded a picture, after which she tried to add it to a page. After that, the site was slow, she told, but she was still able to do what she needed to do. The next time we tried to access the site we saw just the blank page of one of our locales.

We cleared the cache through the CLI, and everything seems to be fine at the moment. However, I am wondering what could have been the root cause of the crash. Just corrupted cache of this particular page - or something else?

If someone else has experienced something similar to this with version 8.x, please let me know.

Was the picture file huge?
