2004 Kia Optima Question: Car shuts off while driving. Won't turn over and start...

This vehicle was purchased from a family member and this is the second time it's done this. The first time they took car back and apparently put in New alternator and battery. This time vehicle stopped running while driving on why 17. The vehicle was towed and when the key is turned the lights and electric comes on but it won't start.

When you say lights, do you mean the starter doesn't turn the engine? or is the engine spinning and the engine won't run? -
