Same thing happened to meif it will crank and start but not keep running check the conector to the MAS on the top of the air filter box it may have become disconnected, that's what happened when my pickup rolled, and the guys who stole it destroyed the starter trying to get it to go, also check your oil level it may have ended up in the cylinders by draining through he intake so remove the plugs which are probably fouled with oil and turn the engine over to expel the oil( if you have done this with the plugs in damage may have occured, and replace the plugs with new ones. It will smoke pretty bad for a while but should clean up.

Why would a 1999 BMW M3 that was in a rollover accident have white smoke coming out of the exhaust when the car starts and after it is warmed up?

Not having anymore info. other than it was in a rollover, the engine head could be cracked and allowing coolant to get into the combustion chamber which could explain smoking at start up and after the engine is warm. Check your coolant tank for any oil residue - if there is oil in the tank, you've got a engine head problem and your best bet is to get a new head after verifing that the block isn't also damaged.
