2008 F250 dies while driving down the road

This is the second or third time over few month span that ill be driving down the road and the truck will just die. All the head lights, dash light go out, engine shuts off. Truck starts right back up with no check engine light or anything. Any ideas what could cause this?

My truck did that. Only did it once then again the next day and wouldn't start at all. It was the low pressure fuel pump. Do you have anything to read codes because it could be a handful of things if you can read DTC then that would really narrow it down

No i do not have a reader. But would a fuel pump cause all of the vehicles electronics go out? ( all the vehicles head and tail lights, and all dash lights, the clock also reset)

sounds like a problem with the battery. I would check that first then go from there
