Did the bump with the kangaroo damage his door in any way? Once it was opened, did it become impossible to close?

Did the impact with the kangaroo damage his headlights?
This happened to my family and I, once. Luckily we still had one marginally functioning light left (after hitting three kangaroos) and limped home the final one hundred kilometers or so at about 60km/hr. If we had hit a forth, we probably would've been in the same situation...

If he had hit a rock shaped like a kangaroo, would he have had the same problem? If he'd hit a person in a kangaroo suit? If he'd hit a walrus that happened to be wandering around in the Australian outback? If he'd hit a stuffed kangaroo (which had still damaged the car in the same way)?
Is the damage to the car relevant at all?
Is it relevant what country he came from? Was he rendered unable to leave Australia by the kangaroo-hitting incident? Is "home" his home country?

Sunshine is very close. I quote from the BBC website:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/nickbryant/


There is a charming story, no doubt richly embellished with each boozy retelling, of a journey through the bush by two English cricket fans travelling between test matches.

Midway though the drive, they had the misfortune to plough headlong into a kangaroo, which lay lifeless at the side of the road.

A blazer-wearing member of the MCC, one the men quickly decided there was mischief to be made out of this unfortunate accident. Quickly, he adorned the dead marsupialís corpse in the egg and bacon colours of his illustrious club, dressing it in a blazer, tie and cap.

Just as they were about to capture on camera this moment for posterity - and imagining the delight their trophy-like snapshot would engender from club members back home - the corpse began to stir.

To the menís great horror, the kangaroo got up, looked quizzically around and then bounded into the bush still wearing the tie and blazer. Supposedly tucked inside the jacket pocket was the MCC memberís passport, perhaps even his tickets for the next match.

Great puzzle, I'm sorry that I came in too late. I think the story was adapted into that Kangaroo Jack movie.
