Pulled a "nostatic" hit debris on the freeway - not for the faint of heart

I am just sick. 18 wheeler flat bed had a strap hanging off of a ratchet tie down. Strap went under the wheel and ripped the ratchet tie down off and left it on the interstate. ( did not see the truck):-((

Scary ride broke the brake master cylinder off and punched the pedal assy up under the dash - new meaning to the word no brake pedal. Also ripped the floor pan up all the way back and put a big dent in the SSI. Was able to pull off with the parking brake. Another car pulled off same piece of debris had holed his oil pan - what a mess. I am going to try and get a piece and have it welded in. Restoration Designs new pedal cluster area is not available for a couple months. The real kicker is I have a track day in early March I am organizing, really want to try and get back on the road for that!!!

Any body have any thoughts like - thats not repairable.....:-((
