A bad MAF can send your car into crazyness. You don't really have much else on there electronics wise that could send it into death mode like that though, so i'm leaning for that, otherwise check all vaccuum hoses, especially the big one that goes to the firewall, if that'* off, you'll have a hell of a time driving it.
I think the o2, and IAT, wont do this when they go south, but the MAF is one of the big ones. Another being the knock sensors, but i doubt you're getting enough knock to kill it by timing...
