Sounds like your fuel pump died. Have someone turn the key to Accessory while you put your ear to the fill hole after removing the gas cap. Do you hear a humming? If not, your pump has failed. If you hear a hum, then your timing belt may have broken. Take off the distributor cap cover. Put a ratchet on the bolt that's on the inside of the harmonic balancer. Have someone slowly turn the engine over and watch the rotor on your distributor. If rotor does not turn while the other guy is manually turning the engine, then your timing belt has broken. Or your coil may have fried. Check for spark.
