Curves and pot holes can do the same thing. I'm going to guess that the impact was on the right hand side and the frame wasn't pulled out completely. You may be able to take some measurements yourself and check it but I can't tell you what to go off of. You have to figure that out for yourself. I'm talking about the distance from the front spindle to the rear axle on each side to compare between the left and right side of the truck with the steering straight. I'm guessing the impact side would be shorter. If they're both the same all is good and just get an alignment. If not you need to get the frame checked unless you can do it yourself. The same thing can happen to your rear end if you hit a curve with it. Curve damage to the rear tire can push the axle back 1/2 inch or more and your a$$ end will be riding sideways while going straight. Just like the front ends doing only you can steer it straight.
