2001 Toyota Corolla hit a small pothole and shut off?

I was driving my car around town the other day and drove perfectly fine.When I got close to going home I hit a small pothole and the car shut off on me in which stalled on the driveway.I've had the fuel pump and crank censor replaced recently.After I hit the pothole the battery and oil light came on.I've tried starting fluid/ether already and that didn't work either.What else could it be?

    battery and oil light coming on after engine stall is normal.

    check the "EFI" and the "circuit opening" (fuel pump) *relays*. they are known to pop off.

    location for those can be found here,

    after you open it in your browser, save the image to your hard drive. then enlarge it. better resolution.

    it is possible that the ecu is now in limp mode. so after you solve the issue, pull the EFI main *fuse*, located just above the EFI relay, for 30 secs. key off. that resets it.

    i don't see a fuel cut off/inertia systems on this. not in the book anyway. but that doesn't matter. you replaced the fuel pump. toy puts the cut off valve is on those. so you're prolly good there.
