I would take a look on that side, perhaps the actuator or sensor is hit, there is not much room between the cylinder head and the sub frame.

On top of the cylinder head (valve cover), it's better to look under the car, it will be clear in a minute.

P0026 Valve lift control, bank 1 output stage - open circuit

Possible fault cause

- Open circuit in triggering wire

- Open circuit in B+ supply

- Solenoid hydraulic valve faulty

Look for the solenoid valve actuator that protrudes from the cylinder head on that side. Check the connector and the wiring to see if it is damaged - and since this was a crash look to see if the solenoid itself is damaged. My guess is a wire got cut or the connector is damaged.
