As its listed as NSF, it is a part fitted to the left hand front suspension, probably a link bar. ESP is a part of the ABS, anything effecting the ABS could also effect ESP.

ESP: Electronic Stability Program - senses when the car is about to go out of control and can apply an individual brake to a wheel to help avoid the spin. Will not totally prevent the spin but means that it takes more to lose control.

Which ever it is, it needs sorting straight away before you put adverse wear on your tyre.
Also, the vehicle steering alignment will have to be checked after any suspension part is replaced.

You don't say how old your Yeti is, if it is one of the originals the MOT might be just around the corner and a lit ESP light will be a failure, as will be the damaged suspension/steering components. For your own well being you need to get it booked in somewhere either to get an informed opinion as to whether you can replace the damaged parts yourself (which is doubtfull) or at least get an informedestimate to know what you are facing. It may well be that there are other parts which have been damaged at the same time. ESP and ABS are not things for the normal home mechanic (I have removedstripped, and rebuilt an engine at the roadside, but would not interfere with ESP or ABS) and are safety related,steering geometry needs specialist equipment.
