The sulpher smell comes from the interior of the catalytic converter on the exhaust line. The collision with the snow bank loosened some of the liner. You will have to replace the converter to get rid of the smell.

The sulfur smell is the catalytic converter. There will always be some smell of sulfur. The converter changes the carbon monoxide in the exhaust to sulfur dioxide. Strong sulfur smell may be an indication the converter needs to be changed. This can also be a symptom of a leaking battery.
