Default 1995 Honda Accord suddenly died?

I drove my car for about thirty minutes. I went to go home and it started fine, but then died not even a second later. I tried to start it and it wouldn't even turn over. Lights do not work. Absolutely nothing happens when I turn it over. It's a 4 cylinder. Has around 205,750 miles. Battery is new as of February. Purchased my battery at local Autozone(I believe). Had friend install it and he said it wasn't the right size for my car(even though the sales person picked it out for me after telling her my make and model). Upon installing, my friend kind of rigged it up so that it would fit in my car and the cables would connect to the battery; he said it would be fine. I have not had a problem since then. I just had a tune up and it is due for an oil change soon. I know my car is old and has a lot of miles on it. I just don't think I'm ready to part with it yet. I'm sure some people know what I mean-Hondas can last a very long time and I would love to hit the 300k mile mark!

The car probably had a maintenance problem that you hadn't done. May be oil Change or engine problem. Just bring it to a mechanic and try starting it again. If it don't work. Tell a toll truck to pick it up and tell them to fix it

It's most likely your alternator, it probably went out an it's 95% chance that's what needs to be changed.

If your friend knows what he's talking about, then maybe the battery has damage from not being the correct size. It would explain why the engine died while running and then would not even crank the engine or power the lights.
