Is my coaster hub damaged?

Hi, I have a Dahon Speed Uno and was in an accident recently. My rim is damaged and i'm wondering if I should replace the rim or just get a new wheel.
I don't have the bike with me right now, but I remember seeing a loose or split ring hanging from the axle. Do you think the hub/axle is also damaged?
I'll try to get better photos once I have recovered but the attached photos are the best photos I have for now. Thanks!


you can see the ring to the right of the chain.

No bike shop to ask? a couple pictures is a poor substitute ..

Buying a new wheel could get you a 3 speed coaster-brake.. ..

I was hit by a car, but I can't go in to details. It will be awhile before I can bring it to a shop. I'm just bed ridden and thinking about my bike. lol
Could you recommend a 3 speed coaster brake wheel? Is it something I can purchase or will I need to be piece meal it?
Thanks!

Hope you can recover well and soon from your injuries. Make sure that the bike frame/"rear triangle" and hinge are inspected for structural damage; by the looks of it, you were hit hard. Good luck!

The OP asked for a prebuilt WHEEL,...NOT the link to the Sturmey-Archer website for the hub.

@rayjai - do a Google search,...this way you can locate a company that will ship to your location/country. I'm not sure where you live, so if I link to a seller it's not guaranteed to ship to your destination (I'm in the USA).
