    I would recommend start with checking the fuel pressure. It is possible your wreck did some damage to the fuel pump harness. You may want to also make sure your inertia switch has not been tripped, check your owners manual to see if you do indeed have an inertia switch. Make sure that you don't have any pinched fuel lines also.
