HelloCustomer it could be anything, however it may be able to be adjusted to compensate if the damage is not that severe. Take it to a good alignment shop and they will be able to tell you if there is something they cannot adjust. They should be able to tell you what is bent, if anything. They will get you a print out. If you can replicate it or scan it and add it to a post on this thread, I will be able to read it and tell you if there is anything to be concerned about. I've seen just as many good outcomes as bad, after an event like this, so get it looked at and see what shows up.
