My bolgainvilla was run over and broke at the base of the tree. It's about 8ft tall. Can it be saved?

If "broke at the base" means it is completely severed, then all you can do is to remove the broken portion, water, fertilize and wait for growth response in spring.

If the basal stem is not completely severed, then prune to remove any overburdened weight that might further the breakage.
