Engine quitting

Twice my engine has quit when making a sharp turn into a parking spot. Subsequent attempts to restart the car immediately causes the engine to quit again. Only by either waiting a short while or feeding some gas to keep the car running is the problem temporarily solved. What could be causing this? Year of vehicle - 1995. Thanks.

My inital thoughts are a idle circuit that is not increasing idle speed while making sharp turns at almost a dead stop.

Thanks, oldschool, for replying to my question. Will have this checked out to see if it is the problem.
