Default Am I screwed?

Tonight I was backing out of my driveway (its really long but not too wide). My dads massive pick up truck was parked on the right side and I was on the left. Being that it was really dark out my judgment was a bit off and I lightly hit his car but quickly stopped and drove it forward.
His car is already beat up from construction so you can't tell it was hit. But the car I was driving (02 durango) got some white scratch marks and a deep scratch on the rear fender. I was able to wash away the white marks but was wondering what my options are for the deeper scratch that won't wash away?

Post pics if you can. however; Depending on how much you scratched through the paint, your cheapest option would be the following:
- fill the scratch with factory touch up paint (3-4 times or until its at or above the original paint surface level)( Let dry as long as you can between layers)
- Wetsand the work area after its COMPLETELY dry to blend the touched up area; Finishing with 2500-3000 grit paper.
- Compound, polish, & wax (With a Multi speed DA Polisher and proper foam pads for best results)
- Take pics of your results and post em!

I recomend using a DA Polisher with foam pads if you are a beginner and are not comfortable with a rotary and wool pad. You can get very good results with the DA and foam pads, and they are almost fool proof.

*Quick tip if there are any white marks or paint marks left that didnt wash away. Use a wet magic eraser (Wal-Mart) to get off any extra paint or scuffs. Be as light as possible and polish, & wax after to clear up the haze it will leave.
