First thing - check to see if your inertia switch (fuel shut off) tripped for some reason. It's located behind a trunk side trim panel. Press down on the button and see if it resets.

Other than that - a basic diagnosis needs to be performed to check for fuel pressure and spark. Fuel pressure issues will likely lead to a faulty pump or fuel pump driver module. Spark issues could originate from a crank or cam sensor issue. This is not a terribly easy car to work on - I suggest a good tech with a high grade diagnostic tool.
