Default car shut off while making a turn

As the title says, my car totally turned off while I was making a turn. Earlier before this happened I was stopped, and it acted like it wanted to stall, but didn't. I have a couple ideas what it could be but not too sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Possible vacume leak? I know that vacume leaks make the car almost stall out. Maybe a short in the electrical system somewhere? Anyone work on your car lately?

Was your car low on gas? This use to always happen to me when I was low on gas, but i also had a walbro fuel pump and this is a common thing.

does it totally turn of electrically, or does the motor just stall....

if its stalling, do u have a powersteering, if so, do u have a p/s oil leak? or maybe it could be a bad p/s oil pressure switch. when u make a turn the motor likes to die or come close to it cause of the extra stress when u turn, the p/s pressure switch fixes that by telling the ecu to bump the idle a little when u turn. if that switch is bad, it could be causing ur motor to stall.

The motor acted like it wanted to stall earlier in the day at a dead stop, but didn't. It totally shut off all power to the car. So i guess its not really stalling, just shutting off completely.
