Because of the impact you could have knoched a wire loose check and see if all the wires are connected.

Your vehicle has a fuel pump cut off switch - or "inertia switch" - which is designed to cut off fuel pressure when there is a significant impact, to protect against a fuel leak or fire.
The switch should be located behind the drivers side kick panel area. Press down on the button and see if it starts.
