Car park worms

While trudging across the tarmac of the vast staff car park, I noticed, curled up on the ground, an earthworm.
He/she/it was far from the nearest patch of soil and I wondered how it had found itself there. Of course this is not a new sight for me but it did provoke some interesting thoughts:
Did a bird drop the worm as it made for its preferred dining spot? Did it fall from the tyre of a car after a dizzying journey? Can worms travel much further and faster than we believe?
Answers on a postcard please.
