No start on Freestyle after minor collision

My friends wife has a Freestyle that was in a minor rear end accident earlier today. It was running fine afterward and she states that there was no apparent damage to her vehicle. She ran an errand and afterwards when she got back in the car, her anti theft light is on and the airbag deploy light is also on. The airbag obviously didn't go off and she never lost sight of the car so she says no one tried to steal it. Now it won't even turn over. She bought the car used and it didn't come with a key fob, so she can't use it to deactivate the anti-theft system. I have a brand new Auto-Enginuity with the expanded domestic bundle and was wondering if anyone knew if there was a procedure that I could use on it to clear the codes and reset the Anti-theft system so she can drive it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The key FOB won't disable the starter, it just arms the passive anti-theft system (parimeter, open door w/o key horn honking/lights flashing). Try using a spare key instead. They are transponder keys and that could be the problem. you might need to get the key reprogrammed.
