Hmm. Sounds like the hit caused an electrical disconnect. What is the nature of "won't start"?

Unfortunately, you're going to need to either do some exploring yourself or have it taken to a shop.
I agree with the assessment that it's likely a fuse, relay, or a plug that came loose with the impact, but it could be other issues.

Have you checked all the fuses?
What does the gear select on the instrument cluster show? P? 3 horizontal bars? Nothing?

Do you have a scanner capable of reading OBDII and canbus?

Hmm, ok. Let's see. You are sporting a UK flag. I am assuming that you are in England. If you are, do contact Kane. He's THE smart guy. Here's his creds:

Sounds more like the plug has come off the clutch actuator.
Your description of how the car stopped is exactly what happens if you suffer an actuator failure whilst driving.

also the car will not start after.

check the plug, just in front of the rear wheel

Sounds to me that these people don't have clue whar they're talking about. Be very careful who/what you listen too. Most of it is crap......

What would your wise council be? Obviously our meager knowledge isn't up to your lofty standards.

Oh wait, you haven't offered a single piece of useful help. We await, oh wise one, for your sage advice.
