Default engine / fuel shutoff kill switch

This is in regards to a 2006 kia rio 5.

My wife was involved in an accident the other day. The front bumper is pretty much a loss as well as the driver side headlight. None of the fuses are blown, the electrical is working, i dont see any leaks and yet the engine wont turn over.

I am (for the moment assuming the fuel / engine killswitch has been triggered). I called the dealership and they confirmed that there was a kill switch for this model under the engine hood near the driver side - but due to a lack of good communication, they were not able to direct me to the switch even while i was talking to them while looking under the hood of my car.

I would like to know where this darn switch is. Is it black like thy said? pictures would be nice, if possible.

Thanks in advance.

I found this site with the service manuals for Kias. Might want to take a look there and see if you can identify the killswitch. It is a free registration.
