door latch problem

66 impala 4 dr. My son hit the lock at the same time my wife pulled on the pass. rr door. The door now won't close all the way, but the latch engages. I've pulled the door panel looking for any adjustments and can't find one. Is the door latch toast?

I had this happen to me I took a screw driver and pushed it against the latch like it was latching closed press and depress the door knob then it started working again. It is kinda complicated to tell you but the latch is still engaged like it is locked you just have to disengage it. The latch is not toast.
