Without looking at the picture (it says "access denied"): if the RD went into the spokes you likely either need a new hanger (if it can be swapped out, otherwise good luck bending it back...) or a new RD, if that has been mangled.... Could you try to upload the picture to the forum? (cannot remember how to do that, long time ago and a different engine, I think). More likely than not, the alignment of the hanger is off after this. Plus check the spokes if the chain got jammed behind the cassette...

If you get an email requesting access to your Google photo, it's from me.
If I knew how to ride a bike properly, I'd do it every time.
