Did you notice any white smoke out the exhaust? If so could be a bad head gasket. A vehicle getting hot enough to shut its self down might have a critical failure.

I would pull the spark plugs out and inspect them. Are they wet and smell like anti freeze? If so head gasket bad or worse if it got way to hot. When you say won't start -- does it turn over but not start or don't turn over at all?

It turns over but would not start. I finally got it to start. Added more coolant and leak stop because it leaked. Still heating up but the overheating light did not come on and I only drove as long as I had to
