How bad is the damage? If I had to guess, I would say the linkage to open the hatch is either broken or disconnected from the accident. However, the only way to check is to remove the rear inner door panel. Reove it and check the linkage. Even with the door closed, you can remove it. It may be a pain, but can be done. THere are a few screws that will need removed and there are clips between the panel and the door itself that will pull apart after the screws are out.
Let me know what you find.
