Default 2001 LE Cruiser dies while driving

My car has died a few times while driving down the road. It is not running rough or anything, the engine just cuts out completely. After letting it sit for a few minutes, it will start back up. I checked the error codes by turning the ignition 3 times and got code P 0320. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! After searching around a bit on this forum, I've found a couple of threads that may help me. I suppose I should have done that first

Came back to update this thread. It ended up being the crank sensor.

if it happens again, replace the camshaft sensor magnet. right under the sensor. you will have to get it from the dealer. $20.00. autoparts stores may not carry it and dont even have it in their schematics
