Trunk has Gap and leaks

I have a 2012 Toyota Yaris. My brother backed into a truck and now my trunk is off track, has a gap (you can see into the trunk, whole right side of trunk) and of course when it rains it gets into my trunk and into the back seat. I don't have the money to go to a body shop to get it fixed. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to go about fixing it. I live in Indianapolis and so far this spring we've had LOTS of rain. The smell is about to drive me crazy, I feel horrible because my 4 year old has to sit back there. I need to get it under control before mold sets in, if it hasn't already. I really don't want to wrap it in plastic but I feel like that's my only option. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! Is there some kind of sealer or foam I can use? I'm to the point that I don't care if I can't get into the trunk.

    Hello! For a quick cheap temporary fix until you can get to a body shop, I would go to a home improvement center and get a couple of those long foam pipe insulators, they are already split on one side to go over a pipe. Put one on the edge of the trunk lid where the leak is and the other over the body where the lid comes down, duct tape them in place from the inside, and there you go. They are water proof! Hope this helps.
