    drove over curb in fog 96 cadi died and wont restart

    hello I am really hoping someone has an idea. It was foggy I turned down a new street too wide, I didn't realize they had a divider until it was too late. Driver side road up along curb for a few seconds.The bottom scraped hard and the car went a few feet and died. Now it won't start I had to tow it home. I see no visual damage it wants to start but doesn't fire.
    Thanks Dan

    I did pull the codes but I don't have them on me. I will post them in a few hours. The only current code was a traction control one though all the rest were in history.
    Thanks for your time. Dan

    The only thing I can think of is a damaged fuel line.
