Advice Needed: Down Tube Dent - Dangerous to Ride?

I recently had a car door opened in front of me while riding. The bike escaped with moderate damage, the most concerning to me is a dent about the size of a quarter and about a 1/4" deep, about half way down the Down Tube.

Is this a dangerous dent?

The bike is a 2000, or so, Specialized Sirrus Road Bike that is ChroMoly (sp?).

I don't want it collapsing on me, I am a Clydesdale, as I received a seriously broken finger in the accident.

Thanks for the advice.
