I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.
Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.
Hope this helps and good luck!

if you were completely out of gas you can prime the car by turning the key forward until just before the starter engages and back off again. do this several times. doing this will allow the fuel pump to prime.

SOURCE: Ran out of gas......
Sounds like fuel pump burned out when you ran out of gas. probably ran dry for about 20 sec till engine quit. Check for power to fuel pump in tank.Most likely fuel pump will need replacement . Hope this helps

worst thing for fuel pumps is to run dry. The pressure will need to be confirmed. If none ,you overheated the pump and it will need to be replaces.
