Err... Pictures would definitely be the better. Your description isn't specific enough. A picture is worth a thousand words.

if it's a crack down the center from the bridge to the bottom of the guitar you have yourself a humidity dry spell. guitars don't crack for no reason.

No no, this was an accident of my own stupid fault, it fell off the wall because of me, and landed on a peice of wood its my own fault completly but im gutted and really angry with myself. I just hope it can be fixed, im taking it into my local guitar shop tomorrow. I doubt its gonna be cheap!

Splits down the body can usually be fixed, if the split cuts into the soundboard then it's bad news.

Like the others say, get it checked out - splits come in all shapes and sizes and you never know what a talented luthier can do.

To sum up in short...
Cuts along the grain aren't too bad because the pressure is going in the same direction with the grain.
Cuts perpendicular to the grain are BAD. Go get it checked out.
