For starters we'll need to know your year and trim level. It'* a good idea to add that information to your signature line.

You probably broke the plastic bypass fitting in the lower intake manifold. The dealer has a metal replacement. It can be found by following the bypass hose up from the water pump until it enters the lower intake manifold, just forward and below the alternator.

Is it even safe to drive this to go get the parts? only 2-3 miles away?

Do NOT drive the car, and don't replace it with a plastic part. If they don't have metal, go elsewhere.
