Look for loose electrical connections. Some models have a roll-over switch that shuts off fuel in the event of a roll-over. If you hit the pothole hard enough while in a high G cornor then you may have tripped the switch which must be reset manually.

You could have a MAF sensor issue, if it turns over then sounds like it is missing, and when you try to give it gas then you need a new MAF.
