Buy a new bolt, cut the hex head off, and hammer towards the front of the car (if the inside is still straight, then it should come out.

If it's only bent on the threaded side, then cut that end off and hammer out the way its supposed to go.

^ what he said; any bolt that isn't threaded all the way through can be hammered out, however, getting clearance is always the fun part...
