Friend of mine hit a deep hole and almost same thing 
happened to him it wouldn't run at anything but idle and even then it 
would like to stall.  He towed it to the dealer and it turned out to be 
both the timing and the CO level out of adjustment.  His hit was 
serious though.  He said he was surprized that he didn't loose his 
oil pan or part of the suspension. After both timing and CO were 
adjusted the car was back to normal.
