Car cranks but will not start!! Help!!

Hey everyone, I'm new to rotaries so I would appreciate your feedback so I was driving down a residencial street normally, when I came to a dip nothing to big so I slowed down & when I went over the bump my RPM dipped down to 0 I didn't mind it at first because the car is fairly old but what I didn't know is that the car completley shut off! Everything else electrical like my stereo was working fine Its like the engine stalled out so when I slowed to a stop sign & tried to go... it was off. I tried to start it immedietly but it wouldn't crank over. So I pushed it to the side of the road & tried to diagnose the problem when I tried to start it back up I noticed that the rpm would stay at 0 the needled wouldn't jump like how it usually does when you start the car. I thought it was flooded so I did the unflooding technique & it didn't work. So I called my friend to tow it to his house & for we could diagnose the problem tomorrow. He told me it maybe be the fuel pump or something that has to do with the fuel delievery 😢 Please help me 😭

If the tach needle isn't moving, check your CAS. (Crank angle sensor)

This ^. Check the Crank Angle Sensor (CAS), it may need replacing or the connections aren't secured. Had this happen to me and it was a ground connection.
