WONT START

2002 Oldsmobile Alero • 131,000 miles

Stalled while stopping at an atm. Was still in gear and moving. Fired up twice as soon as put in drive died. Would not refire. Radio, wipers, headlamps work but no dash at all or power windows. Turn key only hear locks engaging and fuel pump when turning key off.

Hard to get there without a car. Not trying to be a smart aleck, just frustrated. Thanks for your help. Looks like I have to get it towed. Was hoping it was something I could find get a ride to buy part and fix it. Really don't know how to use volt meter or where to test. Thanks anyways I appreciate it.
