Going on a hunch here, but it looks like it might pull to the left a bit now.

Glad that your mom is ok. I didn't know subframe failures can go to such extent in a crash.

Go to the car care and detailing forum. They'll tell you how to buff that right out.

First, glad to hear your mother is not hurt or seriously injured.
From the photo, looks like the other driver headed right towards the driver side... but you said she was struck from the rear? Was she shoved into another car/object...? To have the side damage.

Second, it's a great part out vehicle now.. shoe horn her motor into your ride.
