I am trying to do this same thing except instead of a street this is Antarctic ice pack. I created the meteor, the chunks of ice, etc. but I am having difficulty making the ground match my existing scene. I have a picture I made in Photoshop that is the backdrop for a music video I am doing. This picture is also where I want to crater to be. I need the crater to be in my existing picture or have it match the picture. I went through the entire tutorial and managed to get the ground to look like ice/snow but does not look like the picture. Any advice? Is there somewhere I can post the image for people to see?

When I attempt to make a group plane (Matte/Shadow) "See-through" It only makes slightly transparent, if I hide the object I don't get shadows. What should I do?

I'm pretty sure he did the main title for Star Trek and Super 8. Both J.J. Abram films.
