Engine suddenly lost power on highway, would not start afterwards

Driving on highway and engine suddenly lost power. Pressing gas pedal- no result. Stopped and would not start. Can hear starter. Radiator light lit briefly in recent past when speeding up. No fluid leakage noticed. One oxygen sensor was throwing error code (has been for quite some time).

No speed when gas pedal is to floor tranny light came on


With the oil light coming on and the brake pedal being hard to press I would say that the engine stopped hence no vacuum -no power assist from the booster.- hard brake pedal. The lock uo feeling may come from the engine seizing up while you were still in gear
