Intersection of Aeolis Serpens with Crater Rim

Sinuous Aeolis Serpens and a Crater Rim
Long, amazing, Aeolis Serpens “fluvial ridge” intersects a crater rim in this observation. Was the crater buried and a stream flowed over it without any interaction (because it was buried), or does the crater post-date the stream and the erosion that formed the ridge? Either way, we have a chance to look at the interior structure of the ridge.
