Unhappy Front end fixable?

I was driving in my car today (1988 Chevy Corsica 2.8). Well I was doing 40 and got a semi truck driver to my left who wanted in my lane and didn't see me, he went to pull over leaving me the only choice of hopping the curb. I did and then bam really loud noise then grinding.

Got out and looked, instead of my tire being in the center of the wheel well it is pulled up against the back of the fender (about 6 inches) what type of damage am I looking at besides the lower control arm (it is bent with a Z shape in it).

What other parts am I looking at having to replace and about how much would you expect to do this (less rim, tire, and front end alignment)? I have to pay for this all because the ****ing truck driver didn't stop and I didnt get his info or anything)

Thanks for the help anyone can offer.

You should thoroughly check the entire suspension on that side....tie rod end, cv joints, whatever that car has upfront. Price is gonna depend on what needs fixin, hard to tell.
