Could be as little as a loose battery terminal could be the power wire that runs down to the starter loosing connection at the starter. Could be the ignition switch. Have the charging system and the battery checked out make sure the wires on the starter are tight then go from there.

Crank sensor is bad. Its located behind the harmonic balancer . The symptoms should be from the tach going to 0 to car shutting off.
