I highly doubt that pressing the horn too hard could have caused the problem. I suspect the pinched wire theory stated above. Horns draw a LOT of amps when they are on. If the wire got pinched in the accident then you might have broken a few strands in the wire and thus reduced the number of strands that are carrying the load. This, in turn, increases the amp draw on that circuit which pops the fuse. I'd dig into the area of impact and look for wires that show abrasion on the insulation to see if you can pinpoint the issue.
