Can you hear the fuel pump run? Have you checked for spark yet? You can also give it a little shot of starting fluid to see if it will try to start, don't get carried away with it though, can cause damage if not used properly. If it trys to start with starting fluid, you need a fuel pump. If no spark you will have to start checking the ignition componets.

After driving, car will not restart, turns over fine, will start after 5 minutes

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My car won't turn oer it cranks but won't start

THe problem is that there is no fuel due to fuel dirty fuel filter. When you are at constant speed as 50 mph, you don't have to press gas pedal to much requiring instant fuel. However every time you need to press the pedal, you can experience this problem. Now it is really clogged up ,so fuel is not delivered to the fuel distributor so it can't start. Need to replace fuel filter.
