truck died

I was on cruise control on the freeway chip set on eco, gave it about 1/2-3/4 throttle to get around a car it downshifted then it was like it went in neutral. I pulled over into the dirt, it idled at about 100 rpm. I still had power steering and brakes while coasting, there was no check engine light or anything and no white or black smoke, just an idle so low the truck couldn't move and the truck was really shaking. I was thinking it might be the camshaft position sensor, any other ideas, and if it is the sensor would ford do it free again, i just did the recall about six months ago.

Any DTC's thrown? May have gone into limp mode but that idle sounds to low even for that.
