Exclamation I rolled my '97 hyundai elantra, what do i do now?

i rolled my '97 elantra last week, not completely just onto the roof.
I didnt get much body damage, just a broken window. Now it will not start what should i do?
some one told me it was because oil got in the cylinder heads, and all i gotta do is take out the spark plugs and turn the engine over a few times. That doesnt sound right to me.
If anyone has some advice i would appreciate it.

It could be that the fuel cut off has been activated. New(er) cars sometimes have this divice to shut the engine off in the event of an accident. I believe if your car has this device there is a way to reset it. I'm not too sure if this would occur in your situation, but it seems the most likely cause to me. If you have an owners manual, all the relevent details should be able to be found in this.
