Did this happen after you put the new battery in?
I have run into where people just put a new Pep Boys or Kragen or whomever battery in and had issues afterwards. Soemtimes the terminals don't tighten. The bolt will be as tight as you can get it without stripping and the terminal can still be moved. The battery terminal hole may be too shallow not alloing the bolt to go deep enough.
Things will work until you try to start, The starter will draw a lot of juice and cause the loose terminal to arc and lose connection.
Now if this was happening before you replaced the battery then it may be the starter orits circuit. Hook a test light to the starters small "S" terminal and try to start. If the ight comes on its a bad starter. If no light then you need to trace that back. Manual transmission should have a safety switch on the clutch pedal. Automatic will have a neutral safety switch on the transmission (right side where the gear selector hooks to).
But that sudden loss of power makes me thing there is a loose connection arcing. If not at the battery then check the under hood fuse and relay panel.
