A temp fix, if it's in the middle of a straight piece. They make a rubber and metal sleeve. They come in different lengths and diameter. It has a rubber inside with hose clamps on the outside. Put it over the pipe. Pick the pipe up and slide it to the middle of the broken pipe. Tighten down the clamps. There is a name for it, but I cant remember what it is. Plumbers use them when connecting two pipes together, if they can't get a collar in.
You can splice it out with new pipe and two collars. If it's by a y you will have to cut the y out and add a new y and figure out what length of pipe you will need. Clean the pipe with pvc cleaner and glue with pvc cement.

the piece dogbone is referring to is a fernco, measure the outside diameter of the pipes you need to reconnect and buy a fernco with an "inside" diameter matching or close to that size, slide it on, tighten the clamps and it's fixed.

That's the name. No hub by Fernco. I went to Fernco's web site. They make a tee and an L coupling now.
Just some more info for the OP. They sell them at Lowe's or Home Depot. I/we don't know what will work or not work for you. Good luck.
