I got into a car accident recently but drove away perfectly fine, but after I started it back up the car shuts of every 45 minutes of driving where then I have to pull over, turn it off, start it back up again and can drive again. (the gas just stops working, but car/radio is still running) Please help, thank you.

Is the yellow check engine/service engine soon light on? Any indicator's on or anything showing a problem, gauges etc? Any new noise from engine area?

No none of that. Literally the gas just starts going out slowly. No matter how far I push in the gas it doesn't go or rev up. But as soon as I restart the car it's good again for the next 40 minutes.
