If it struck, it would have stuck. And we wouldn't be here today. Planets, even dwarf planets, have too much mass and gravity to carom off each other like billiard balls. They would have collapsed into each other, releasing a lot of energy in the process, making one big mushy ball of molten goo.
once it struck earth and caused devastating damage to the planet.
