The fuse is most likely blown from when the blade stalled the motor.( jammed into the rad)

MY ground wire on my cooling fan was not connected properly and had to be rewired/grounded. My fan didn't hit my radiator though, it just stopped working one day. check the wire connections.

Pull the connector for the fan and see if you have voltage to ground on the connector using a 12v test light or a meter.(turn the car on and the aircon,this will turn the fan power on)

which car do you have
2.2 or 2.4
