There's dozens of things that can cause a no-start condition. To start with, you have to determine if you're missing spark, fuel pressure, or both. Diagnostic fault codes need to be read too.
It's important to understand, if you don't already, that brakes and steering do not lock up when the engine stalls. If they did, you'd hear about people running into trees and oncoming traffic every day. You will only loose the power assist and will have to tug harder on the steering wheel and push harder on the brake pedal.
"Not starting" also doesn't tell me what it's doing. Does the starter spin the engine fast enough for starting? If not, suspect the charging system quit and the battery ran down. Try charging the battery at a slow rate for an hour, then see if the engine starts.
