Hit brakes so hard truck stalled?

I was driving down a steep hill by my house and going alittle fast about 55, when I rounded the bottom there was a truck stopped, I had to lock my brakes up. As I did so the truck stalled out... its auto. I know that off roading the TC has caused the truck to stall, but never before driving. So I am wondering if it has ever happened to someone else, does it even make sense? or is it anothing problem that just so happened to happen then? btw its very scary losing your brakes and power at the same time, when needed. I got home and changed my underwear and tried to reduplicate it, with no luck

I was doing a burnout one day in front of my work and when I let off the throttle, the truck died I almost hit a parked semi because I had no brakes Don't know why it happened. It fired right back up though....

That happened to me once in my 02. I slammed on the brakes on ice locked them up and the truck died. Like you said. All I can think of is the brakes lock before the torque convertor can react to unlock
