ACCELERATION PROBLEM

2002 BMW 330ci • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 114,500 miles

My car was running great. Was in a minor accident at a slow speed, ran into the back of another car. The car stopped in front of me, braked hard and I ran underneath the other car. Messed up hood, radiator support and radiator reserve, power steering tank and fan blade. Engine starts great and will idle and will accelerate, transmission seems to be pulling great but car will not accelerate in drive. If radiator or power steering fluid is empty would this cause this problem? If headlights are unplugged would this cause this problem? This is a 2002 series 3, 330ci BMW convertible two door. Rollover bars popped up in top of rear seats (no airbags popped out)

Have the car repaired and in that process, a BMW technician will be able to determine the extent of the damage.
