    This happened while driver was parking and ran into a raised area. There doesn't appear to be anything structurally bent either.

    There may be a dent in the nose panel, unless it's completely plastic & the flex upon impact created that type of paint cracking. To repair it properly, the loose edges of the cracked paint should be taken back/sanded down to where there is no loose paint, and the area repainted. I don't know if an airbrush could be used. Check with a quality body shop or paintless dent repair group (like Dent Masters) to see how they would proceed. Good luck!
