Door won't close

the latch in the door isn't in the right position and my door will not close. I tried to turn it using a screwdriver but it doesn't move. Does anyone know how to fix it?

which door?...if ur door got pushed out real quick and bent the hinges or ur door got pushed somehow towards the front of the vehicle, i put two 3/8's extensions in between the hinges and pushed the door like i was closing it, the hex head bolts hold them in between the two pieces of metal...that seems to straighten out a door thats been pushed or pulled on...let me know if u need more help
