brakes don't work

I was in a accident 5 mos ago. A car pulled in front of me and I hit it. I looked,no damage I could see . Next day I had no brakes. Pedal goes to the floor and will not pump up . The red brake light and the abs light are on all the time now. I checked and have correct fluid.
I am going to have some time to work on it.Anybody have this problem before?
Any Ideas how to fix?
It is a 97 350 7.3 turbo 4x4

I would start at the wheels looking for blown wheel cylinders. I think most often under hard braking like that you have a failure at the weekest point ie a line or wheel cylinder.
