I was driving down the road I heard pop all sudden my foot that was on gas pedal goes all the way down to floor board and it shuts off. I tried to start, but will not turn over. Does it sound like fuel pump or gas line broke or string to gas pedal broke?

It sounds like the battery shorted out or you have a bad connection. Can you please follow these guides to test and check the connection to the battery?

It could be, to confirm the problem can you use a large breaker bar on the front of the engine to see if you can turn it over manually?

This guide shows how to remove it which you don't need to do but you can see the part that needs to be turned.clockwise.
