Ford, Chrysler/Daimler, and Foreign cars use the inertia switch in case of an accident. GM uses the oil pressure switch. If the oil pressure drops below 3 psi, it shuts off the juice to the fuel pump, accident or not. Later cars are now often controlled by the air bag ECU instead, so only will cut fuel if air bag is deployed, so it won't shut off because of a little fender bender.
