Oil pump failure(probable cause ?)

I had the intermediate shaft on my 79 3.0 sc engine break at the circlip splined shaft today at the front of the engine, What could of caused the pump to seize like that, I had driven the car very easy for about 30 minutes stopped at a friends, the car sat maybe another 20 minutes and it failed driving 2 blocks home, When I reached my driveway the oil pressure was gone and sounds of a bad rod knock present. Examination of the drain plug and sump screen showed nothing abnormal?.
