Hi there. This sounds like there is a major vacuum hose or line that split or came off while you were driving the vehicle. Check the engine compartment for any vacuum hose or line that could have came off or split causing the engine to run rough and stall out. Fix the vacuum hoses or lines that came off or replace the ones that broke. If you need further assistance with your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you with the engine running rough and stalling out while driving.
