Focus running cold

I have a 02 zetec, i cant get my car to heat up. After running for an hour my needle still sits amost all the way to the left even running at 70 mph. The heat wont get warm not hot but just warm untill it is up to 2500 rpm. If i stop is blows cold again. i had a small front end wreck a few weeks ago. It bent my core support back so had to replace it. My radiator was fine but the ...i think trany cooler on the front got slightly bent but no leaks. Is the wreck the cause, or is my heater core going out.
Please any info, thoughts will help. Its in the 30s here in ks in mornings and i take my kids to the sitters in the morn so need to figure this out quick

This pic is after running in the drive way for 15min then driving for another 15min
