That's a lot of damage.

A bent bolt is fixable, but in this case, it appears that after it bent, the left flange took more force that it was designed for and bent the crossmember. From the pictures it looks like the way the flange is cantilevered rearward, it acted as a lever twisting and bending the crossmount.
