Are you saying the 5 speed was in the bike when the crash happened? Is the transmission in neutral? If the transmission is in gear, there's a decent chance the dogs have sheared (pretty common on an early 5speed). If the bike is in neutral and making all that noise, it's possible the clutch splines have stripped. Either way, you will need to remove the transmission and have a look.
