RIP 96 Mazda you will be missed

Sure it could be a CS posi sensor or it could be a number of other things.
If it was SUDDEN and no warning... it must have been an electrical issue.
Do you still have other electrical?
Will it still turn over (but not fire)

Have you checked for fuel pressure? Maybe the fuel pump went out?

Well if it's getting good spark and fuel theoretically it should run. So it maybe the camshaft positioning sensor or a timing issue.

remove the oil cap and have some one try starting the truck do you see the valve train moving? If not then your timing belt/chain broke.
