This vehicle is not equipped with a collision sensor. It's unusual that it would shut off like that. At this point does the engine crank or does it just do nothing at all?

Just does nothing at all

Gauges and instrument panel will light up. But no start up

Did it seem like the hit was hard enough to jar something loose?

Do you have a scan tool to check for communication with the vehicle's computer?

Expert:  Jared D replied 11 months ago.

Any more suggestions
Expert:  Jared D replied 11 months ago.

I'm sorry, for some reason your responses got hung up and all came through just now.

I would probably start by unplugging the connectors underneath the fuse box and checking for cracks or damage and then hook them back up. See if that makes any kind of difference. Disconnect one of the battery cables first so nothing gets shorted.

I just wanted to check whether you still need help with this.
