head of torx bolt that holds shift lever snapped off head of torx bolt that holds shift lever snapped off

While driving my husband to work this morning (10/6/2021), I hit a rather deep pothole and suddenly felt something hit the top of my foot. Didn't know what it was until I got home and attempted to park my truck. There is so much slop in the shift lever now. Won't go into park. Have to shift by feel. The truck is currently in my driveway in neutral with a gigantic rock as a chock behind the rear driver tire. From what I've read online this is a pretty frequent occurrence in a lot of Ford trucks and SUV's. The bolt is a cheap enough part, but it'll be a labor intensive job. I'm so over this friggin' truck.
