Default control arm ball joint broken while driving

1994 850 turbo 250 k . miles
while driving 10 miles an hour on a slippery snowy road the left front lower control arm ball joint 'bolt' broke,
tire turned left and went under fender stopping car.
this action pulled the axle out of the transmission.

other than that doesn't look like much damage

she's an oldy, owned by a student with not much money.
you tube videos look like a fairly simple fix if nothing else is bent.
if it's . worth fixing we'll take it to a shop to do it.

am i missing something? cheers
