Make sure its not simply an oil filter. otherwise, the lowest point is the oil pan.

You can remove coil pack and get electronics cleaner. Might be able to get it to fire right. But you probably have a cracked coil if oil got in it. $50-100 for new coil. Try the cleaning first on contact. If it runs bad on wet rainy days. There is a crack or and exposed circuit. Start by checking all wires as you did slip may have bumped something loose.

You dont say how much oil your son put in? How did you know the oil was low to start with? over filling the oil by .5 qt isnt going to hurt anything. Its time for a new car.

Son ran over something in road and stopped, looked under car and oil is spilling out.

It's very likely that whatever he ran over put a hole in your oil pan.
Do NOT drive the car any further as you may loose all of the oil and cause the engine to seize.

Call your auto insurance as this can be considered an accident and repairs may very well be covered by your insurance.

Whatever you do, have the car towed to the repair shop of your choice.
