Sounds like you shorted it, yes it would be a fuse blown. If there are any other fuse boxes it would be under the hood or on the side of the drivers side dash.

If involved in a front end collision, obviously the wiring for the light(s) which do not work were damaged. You'll have to get the hood open and begin checking.

You don't say if the accident was front or rear. In either case, if the wires touched, it should have blown a fuse. There is no relationship between the brake lights and the running lights. Look for a short or pinched wires to the running lights.
