Well you could have seized the engine from lack of oil or your is equipped with a low oil pressure shut down that kill the engine if there is no oil pressure. Hope the later is what you have, otherwise it is going to get expensive really fast.

You restarted the car without oil in it? Doh!

Funny! In a sad sort of way- driving 400 meters without oil may not be enough to destroy your engine- engines are factory tested by engineers to see how long they will run without oil- some can go for hours- ok, maybe this is hyperbole- but that engine shut-down thingie sounds like a best answer-

Close tolerance engine + NO oil = (*^&%$@#*)
