Default damage to bumper and radiator support

i have a 2001 pt cruiser and i recently got into a minor fender bender with it and i was travelling 10 km/hr... there is no visible damage to the exterior except that the front bumper is a bit scratched and the energy absorber seems to be fine (not cracked) but the radiator support is badly bent and damaged... the pt cruiser was a used vehicle when i purchased it and it passed the inspection... i was wondering if it is possible that the radiator support was actually damaged in my fender bender or whether the radiator support was damaged prior to purchasing the vehicle

thanks

if the bumper is fine i would say that the radiator support was damaged prior to purchasing the vehicle

Welcome to the Forums.
Keep an eye on that bent support - the radiator can crack and that gets expensive.
You might want to replace it.
