Yes it's true, in fact most cars today will reduce power or shut off an engine when they sense they are overheating and a driver has ignored warning indicators. BTW what do you mean by "wheel to water pump?" Would that be a pulley? I'm assuming the water pump wasn't operating at all then? That would cause an engine to overheat and shut down pretty quick all right.
