Is the cable broken or just the handle that you pull? If just the handle, you should be able to pull the cable with a pair of pliers. Have someone push down on the hood just a little bit while you pull. May also need to pry the hood up also. If and when you get it up, lubricate the latch with anything, oil, WD40, something. If it is broken where you cannot get to, you may be able to get the grill out, or possible get the cable to come thru the grill and pulling on it there.
dodge truck broken hood latch
The latch is broken, not the cable. You can still get to the cable where it is attached to the latch in the foot-well of the car. Grab the cable with a small vice-grip (or similar) and pull. Note that it is very unlikely the cable will break -the latch typically breaks before the cable since the latch is made from plastic and the cable from steel wire.
