Default Big trouble? Transmission fluid and engine oil

I have a problem with my 95 d21 v6 4x4 (canadian). The truck had an accident before I bought it. Hit a tree or something while off in the bush. Front hit on the passenger side and pushed in the front a couple inches.

Now my current problem. I check the engine oil and the level is very high. I did not add oil. I check the transmission fluid and it is a bit low. Truck does not burn or leak either fluid to be noticeable.

Is it possible a seal between the engine and tranny is bad? Or is there something else I should be looking at?

Your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Well, there is no real way for the transmission to leak into the engine or vice versa. If it's auto it's possible someone filled transmission fluid in the engine by mistake.
