Yah, who knows, maybe it cause some little weird electrical surge when it got hit, maybe not.
Anyhow, I get two quick little clicks at the pump when I turn the key but no whirring function noise. I will confirm with meter but pretty sure pump is bad. On another note, it looks like there are pumps beneath both back seats. Identical set
-ups for each. Do you know about that?
The fuel pump is behind the drivers' seat. The fuel level sender is behind the passenger seat. They look similar from the top, but they are quite different. You'll hear the pump whirr if it's good. If the fuel level sender is bad, you'll just get odd fuel readings.

(*NOTE -- This should be the other way, i.e., fuel pump behind PASSENGER seat, level sender behind DRIVER'S seat. My bad.)
