One thing that you can do but it is extremely difficult is manually open the hood. You have to locate where the hood latch is in the middle of the car and push it out so the hood can be free. I would wear something for your eyes because you might need to grease it up before can even move it. The latch can be reached behind or in front of the radiator so make sure to check with a flash light. Also check if there is anything jammed, you can never be too sure.
