I bottomed out on some rocks caused engine light to blink, then drove 15mi and when i stopped the car shut off and would not restart, engine light came on briefly, never lost any oil. only occured one time, but car will not start. Is this an electrical problem and what will it take to fix it? Also is it possible the oil sensor was destroyed? During the drive no oil was lost.

Tough question. The engine light indicates some sort of computer/sensor problem, which can result in the vehicle not starting. Have you tried to jump start the car? It's impossible to say what the problem might be. You'll need a diagnostic tech to investigate with the right tools.
