I've had this part fail spontaneously; you've been lucky my friend.

The radiator is the female part of the equation, and that 90 degree little pain in the butt pushes straight down into the radiator tank.

Tough to tell given the marginal photo quality, but things do look a bit odd-so, clean things up real well, replace the oversized clamp holding the hose to the little part (could have been what caused it to fracture-large clamp probably interfered with something on the underside of the hood) and don't overtighten the new clamp.

Good luck!
