It definitely sounds like a problem in the fuel delivery system which could also very well be traced to an electrical malfunction as being the primary source. There are several things that can go wrong with the fuel delivery system and due to the numerous possibilities, I would have to narrow it all down through process of elimination by either asking for specifics details in engine's behavior prior to this occurrence, or my being there my self. If it is the fuel pump, and it stopped functioning, it is either not getting the 12 volt DC needed to work, or it got worn out. The main cause for a fuel pump wearing out prematurely is neglecting to change the fuel filter as directed by factory recommendations and WILL get plugged with debris eventually. This will cause the fuel pump to labor and work harder than it was designed and it will subsequently cease function (burn out) sooner or later.....Not to overshadow the advice from the previous person, though it does work in some cases....Beating a malfunctioning component with a piece of wood might be more of an effective repair method for fixing a persons malfunction of thinking, should it ever be discovered that the cause was an act of vandalism.......Not that this is the case as I am only being facetious, though possible.....It is slightly coincidental that this happened right after you left your girlfriend's house, as you mentioned.

Fuel pump works? if you cant hear it when you turn the key on then take a piece of wood(2x4)and wrap the bottom of the gas tank until it works,if it works then replace the fuel pump,check the fuses and fuel shutoff switch first before pulling out the tank

. I would check the shifter cable. If it broke in reverse while you're son was putting it in drive that would cause it to remain in reverse . Being stuck in reverse would also cause it not to start because it's in gear.
