IMO, and not meaning to offend, you're having too much bad luck. Stuff happens, but if lightening strikes the same place, we have consider that there may be a reason.

The crash doesn't count, but two broken hangers is too many, maybe you need a new mechanic, or maybe you're handling the bike roughly and bending the hanger inward one way or another.
