Your wife had noticed "the engine had speed up" and now the engine won't start could have a transmission problem but try turning the ignition key while moving the shift lever through the P R N D 1 2 3 position in case the shift linkage/cable has come out of adjustment preventing it from starting (not allowing the transmission neutral safety switch to see Neutral or Park position).
