HELP TRUCK WONT START!

Hey guys so here is the problem

Truck was running fine all day, nothing seemed wrong drove it all of 60 miles today for work and no problems. I was going to be driving up to wisconsin tonight so I stopped to get diesel after work. I filled up and went to start the truck and all it did was crank. It will not start but it does crank. Im guessing its a fuel issue, I checked the fuel and diesel was definitely in the pump, they didnt screw up and put gas in the diesel pump. Everything else seems to look fine but it will not start. I just got it towed back to my house and have no idea what is going on

PLEASE HELP!

ok, just to make sure. check oil level in your hpop. mine wouldnt start one time and it was because the hpop was low.
