Question: Car turns over then dies immediately

I was on my way to help a friend move. When I exited the freeway I realized something was wrong with the car. For 2 miles the car was jerking. I came to a stop sign and the car died. It wouldn't turn on. I waited a minute and it started back up. As I approached my friends house with my car jerking i came to another stop sign and the car died again. This time it wouldn't start or even turn over. I turned my keys to start and nothing would happen, no sound either. My friend came to help me push the car and I hopped in and turned the key and the car now turned over then died. I pulled over to his drive way and the car now just turns over and dies. I just had the spark plugs changed and the battery. Can anyone help me out? Thanks. By the way the service engine light came on after the first time it died.
