Chances are it knocked the crank sensor off or damaged the wiring to it. I believe the sensor is on the timing chain cover near the crank pulley. Also, to confirm that this may be the problem, check to see if the engine is getting spark. If it isn't, that is where I would start.

I'll bet the car didn't look too good.

Let me know if you have other questions.
