Starter will not turn 2002 Ford Focus

 Ford FocusStarter will not turn

While driving, car shut itself down, slowing to a stop, as if out of gas, which was not the case. Have not been able to restart vehicle since. The starter will not turn the engine over, even though battery is very strong (power flowing to all other systems) and there is a loud, obvious solenoid connection.

No previous indication of problem at all with the starter. Not sure if it means anything, but vehicle did strike a deer two days earlier and airbag deployed. However, car drove without issue for the entire two days between the collision and the sudden shutdown.

Any ideas?
