The blue screen (BSOD) is usually caused by the screws holding the screen assembly bracket being replaced incorrectly. The screws are tiny and of different lengths, often by just a few tenths of a millimeter. If you put a longer one where it's not supposed to go, then you damage the delicate copper traces on the logic board.

In your case, it doesn't sound like the device has been opened or repaired. However, the "standoffs" that secure the screws to the logic board could have been jarred off the logic board and damaged it. There are also other causes to BSOD, such as a defective Tristar IC (U2), which can also be damaged after a hard impact.

You may find some ideas about software issues to verify but I suspect you will need to have this phone looked at by a repair shop that can do micro-soldering repairs.
