CAR WON'T STAY CRANKED

I was just around the corner from my house when I turned onto a nearby street and my car stopped. I put the car in Park and cranked the car up again and when I placed it in Drive, it shut off again. It did this several times after attempting to crank the car up. I had gas in the car and even added more. After several attempts later, I got the car to crank again but it shut itself off again. You could hear the fuel pump working but no permanent cranking. What could be my problem?
