Question Car just died!!!! Plz help.

Was driving home for approx. 1 hr when the engine just stopped. Managed to pull over to the side of the road. Car started then drove for approx. 1 min. Sat at the side of the road for an hour, car started and ran for approx 20 min.
Then dead. both times there was a fuel explosion out of the tail pipe approx. 10 sec after it died.
It would not start again....
Tow truck was happy to take 400$.

Question is: Do you think i should look at the coil first, then?????

I will fill you in as i go but any help would be appreciated.

P.S i can still hear the fuel pumps humming away.

P.S.S no spark at the wire or from the coil?...................... Bad coil.... i hope?

Tested the coil + and - . Zero voltage while cranking.
