I think you need to get professionals involved because if that is not straight you are going to have problems with at least the windsheild leaking.

Go to a salvage yard and find the door, and the A-pillar for another b-body, have it cut out and then have a body shop cut, fit and wield the new part in. And they will put in a new windshield for you.

Pull the interior pieces you need as well from the donor car. Should not be too bad to get it fixed.

If you were four feet to the right that would have been your face... Definitley glad to see this happened instead.

Metal is always fixable if you have the right resources. The above advice is spot on, especially regarding the A-Pillar from a donor car. it shouldnt be too hard to find a junked caprice/impala somewhere. Then just saws-all as much of it out as possible... You may even be able to grab the windshield from the same car.
