Default 1990 honda acccord won't start tried everything I can think of

I have a 1990 honda acccord lx. I was on the freeway doing 75 at 3k rpm when suddenly the rpm dropped to 0 and the car sputtered for about a 1/4 mile then died as I was pulling off the highway and into a parking lot. Don't have money to have it towed or for a mechanic. Since then here is what I've done. Volt tested the battery(terminals and cables are fine), checked wiring to everything its fine too, volt tested the connections to the distributor (read 12 at one and 0.6 at the other, guess it splits the voltage), fuel pumps fine and replaced the filter. I've replaced the following: alternator, distributor(bought a whole new one), distributor cap rotor coil and module, spark plugs and wires, main relay. I volt tested everything while the key was in the II position and while trying to crank. Still no spark coming out of the distributor. I've read and thought it might be the crankshaft position sensor but I've never heard of one going out mid flight. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. You guys on here seem to really know your stuff and was hoping you could help.
