My daughters 1999 Ford Taurus will not go forwards or backwards.

(1999 Ford Taurus)
While changing the brakes/rotors/oil and filter, the car slipped off of the jack and fell to the ground! I had the car in park and the parking brake set, when it rolled forward and fell. The undercarriage of the car is very rusty.

Did the fall pinch one of the transmission cooling lines to the radiator?

btw,Having the car in park does nothing when the car is elevated.Blocking the remaining wheels on the ground is the only assurance that it will not roll.You cannot put total faith in the parking brake.
You're lucky that no one was injured or killed.
