Check the serpentine belt, it might have broke.

The driver of the tow truck indicated he thinks it ran out of oil however we saw there was oil in it. He believes the serpentine belt is in tact. Do you believe the oil being low would cause this? It is only a little over due for oil change...3300 miles since the last oil change.

Engine RPMs went to zero, so that would indicate the engine cut out. I'm assuming this happened while he was driving it, and he felt the loss of power steering since it is boosted by the engine. You might not have any problem with the power steering, it was only a symptom of the engine shutting off, and the real question is why did the engine die? Your next move should be to check for trouble codes, which can be done for free at any of the major auto parts stores.

To me it seems as simple as the serpentine belt breaking because of age or whatever. It's not there to drive the alternator to feed the battery and all the electrical systems in the car and it just died due to lack of voltage

If serpentine belt is good,and lost power while driving,this lead,s me toward the timing,belt may have slipped or broke.
