Bar with hook hanging underneath car

I let my mom drive my car. She said she didn’t drive over anything but she is not suppose to drive at night ( which she did). Now I have a bar with a hook hanging from underneath my car on the passenger side. I have no idea what this could be. Any help would be appreciated.

You first… What IS this car? What side of the car am I looking at? Have you tried just pulling this off? Is there any other damage? Where did you mother drive?

I’m not seeing the hook. Is it possibly a parking brake cable? Does it run to a rear wheel or a splitter with cables running to rear wheels?

Bonus free advice:
If Mom said she did not run over anything, I’d go with that and not assume she caused this problem. Mom made a few sacrifices for you. It’s a fight not worth choosing.
