No, I would not think it would do any damage to the transmission of the car you hit. That is not to say that it is not possible, just unlikely.

No if it a manual transmition it is impossible because if it was left in gear it would move the engine and if it was automatic there is some movement if the parkpin has locked but quite alot of movement if the parkpin hasn't locked so who ever told you the transmition was broke tell them that there talking s**t
