CAR RUNNING HOT;NOW WONT START

2001 Ford Focus

Engine Cooling problem
2001 Ford Focus 4 cyl Automatic 103000 miles

I drove my car this morning to a drivethru and while I was sitting in line, the temp gauge went all the way to red. I immediately turned off the car and restarted it and drove home without any problem. The gauge went back to normal. When I got home, I let the car cool and put some coolant in it and now it won't run.I can turn the key and it will start, but it just dies immediately. Could it be the fan or something worse?

The fan may have caused it to overheat, but not this problem.

Has the check engine light come on? When it dies, will it restart?
