Could be many things. Can you give us some more details?

I was driving for less than 5 minutes, went to go around a bend and the car just died. It was like someone turned the key off. I drifted off to the side of the road, put it in park and turned it off. waited about a minute, turned it back on with no problem or hesitation. drove home with no problem.
