One of the pulleys/bearings might be worn and putting enough resistance on the engine that it stopping the car.

It would appear one of the pulleys has frozen. Visually check the belt for damage. Then remove the belt from the vehicle and turn all the accessory pulleys by hand, they should turn. If the car starts without the belt (run for a short time only, as the water pump is not working) the problem will be with one of the belt driven components.

02 Ford expendtion I hit a bump and the truck shut off pulled over and it start back up no problem couple days later driving home from work just shuts off pulled over starts up no problem couple days later on my way to gym I turn off truck get back in truck won't start couple min later start rite up.
