To have the car die instantly sounds a little funny for running out of fuel... I would think it would sputter a bit, but anything'* possible. I hope it'* as simple as gas. Keep us posted.
I had a filter screen come off of a newly installed fuel pump (dealer installed) and when i was below 1/4 and turned right or came to a stop, it (the pump) would squeal high pitched like then the car would just quit. No warning besides the noise. Apparently some part of the contraption would cover up the inlet and cutoff the fuel.
