A can being crushed is definitely a physical change. Same properties, just a different shape!

Physical change, because the chemical structure is not changed by crushing.

It's still the same substance, so it is a physical change.

Nope. That is a physical change. a sugar cube that is crushed into powdered sugar is still sugar.

Yes, a crushed can has chemical properties. They are the same as those of the can before crushing. Crushing a can is a physical reaction and not a chemical one. For instance, if a soup can is made of steel, the steel can be chemically attacked by something like sulfuric acid. And this is true whether the can is crushed or not.

When this can was crushed did it undergo chemical or a physical reaction

Well you can't put it back together after it's been crushed, so it's a chemical change!

The same as in the non-crushed can.

A crushed can is shiny, malleable, and hard. == == It is crushed. It is a can. It is probably dirty, depending on HOW it was crushed.
