Try checking for a fuel pump shutoff switch in the trunk by the rear passenger seat. It might look like a red button that needs to be depressed. Look for a hole in the paneling by the trunk hinge. If you have hit a bump or were involved in a minor accident it might trip so your engine doesn't run in the event of an accident.

Does the car start? because if it doesn't... then your fuel cutoff has been tripped, likely by the car getting hit closer to the gas tank and tripping the cutoff valve. if it's anything like the cutoff in a '91 escort, you should be able to take off the small panel access in the trunk/hatch and reset the switch, if it's the same, it's pretty easy
