Default bent wheel help plz!!!

a car infront of me dropped a few bricks on the highway yesterday ( yes i said bricks) and i ran over one with my passenger side....
now the rim is broken and the tires flat, but my biggest problem now is that my front passenger wheel is bent like hit has no camber, meaning that the top of the wheel tips inward and the bottom of the wheel bends outwars like / l.

What can the problem be? i checked under the car but nuthing seemed to be bent outa shape or broken.

also when i check under my car i notice the green pipe(dunno what to call it) that has the rubber covers on both ends, is sorta bent at the rubber part, but my guess is that its bent since my wheel is bent.

I was jus wondering what is wrong? and If i can just bring it to an alignment shop?

I have bent all the alloy wheels on my last car via ohio's winter's = potholes. I had them fixed here cheep. http://www.wheelmedic.com/wm/index.php It's like $136.50 to fix and repaint a wheel, and they do good work.

You probably knocked it out of alignment.

Is the rim bent or broken? If it's broken, you will need to replace it. If it's bent, depending on how bad, you may be able to have it straightened. Figure ~ $100 to straighten the rim.

If the "green rod" is bent, then it could be that you have a bent half-shaft, which would also have to be replaced. Too hard to tell without a picture.
