Tail light issues

So I have 98 mustang 4.6L.. It was crashed into by a drunk driver. The front passenger side was caved in. I'm having a problem with the tail lights turning on. I checked the bulbs they are fine. The front head lights work and the brake lights work in the back but just the normal tail lights don't. Can anyone give me some few pointers on what they think I can check next. Fuses are fine as well.

Well it sounds like a wire got stretched or pulled out of a tight connection - or maybe a bad ground although bad grounds usually cause other weird things to happen. Try tracing the wire color back to what ever is controlling the lights - the source. I'll bet somewhere along that line you will find your problem. Once you know the wire color, you could just run another one. Also - check the source to see that it is actually activating.
Maybe a wiring diagram would help too.
