    Sounds like you drove the vehicle with the engine overheating until the engine seized. You may also have wiring / electrical issues from the collision that are not apparent or visable. This is a very complex vehicle with Multiple computer onboard all linked together by a BUS (electrical conduit). If ANY wiring is damaged, no matter how slight, problems will occur.
