i would start by taking it somewhere and getting it aligned sounds like the toe is way off but with that hard of a hit you may have a tweeked chassis

I'd take it some where and have it put on an alignment rack.

I live in Lowell also and was trying to find out where at. Have they fixed the hole yet? If not you might want to take a few pics of it and show that there's no barricades up and see if you can get the town to do some thing for you.
