I was driving on the road when I hit a pothole. Vehicle then started shutting down. It eventually stopped and I could not get the vehicle started again. Towed vehicle to a dealership where they took a look at it. They said it looked like a part of the camshaft broke off, got caught in the timing chain, broke both chains, and caused complete engine failure which would require replacement.
