bummer -
Get the hanger out of way, grab a dremel rotary tool with a cut off disk and slot the end of the bolt. Make the slot wide enough for a flat head screw driver.

Unless it has FACTORY OEM GREEN Loctite on the threads, chances are it will come right out. Get a new bolt from the Dealer ship and confirm. If it has Loctite, a pencil torch and heat the bolt to release the glue. Obviously try to unscrew it first.

Dremel is cheap. beyond that, drill out with left hand/reverse bit and if that fails, an extractor kit. Good Luck.
