7.3 crank no start after dying on interstate

Ok driving home from work new to me truck died going 70mph on interstate. I was very low on gas light just came on so thinking this is problem. Got 2 gallons of diesel put in and it fired up immediateley got about 3 miles and it lost all power like fuel cut off then took back off again and then finally died. sat on side of road waiting for truck same issue fast crank no start and after 45 mins started up again. got another 3 miles and died again... bled fuel from bowl so it is in there what is my next step? also pulled icp sensor and still same crank no start issue. my 2003 power stroke is sitting on the side of the road narrowly missing semis. help!

Could be cam position sensor 9 times out of 10 if truck just dies and will start up not long after its cam sensor.. I got lucky when mine would die I would bump the engine over (hit the key to start but don't let it roll over more than half a turn) it would "reset" the position and let the motor fire up.
