alternator stopped working on 1991 Nissan Stanza

I was involved in a rear-end collision where opposing driver's brakes went out & she rear-ended my car while I was stopped at a red light. She was pushing me into the intersection & I had to slamm on the breaks several times to avoid entering the intersection. I then turned to the right side & pulled to the right. After this incident, my alternator went out & the right sway bar link had to be replaced. Could the rear end accident have caused these problems

Possibly the impact ruined some of the sensitive electronics in your Alternator. Not sure about the front sway bar link.
