Default my truck is dead need help ASAP

i was driving takeing pics cuz it snowed. well it was sitting it started making a weird noise. i took the pics got in and started driving on the road. if i pressed the gas pedel to much it would start to sputter and want to die. i get it home parked it turned it off and i tried to start it and it just clicks like the battery is dead. but the battery is brand new!

----------

and the altenator is fine and works. took it in and had it test.

charles if you can take the alternator to an autozone and have it tested i would. if your battery is brand new and its now dead after driving for a while it sounds to me like your alternator isnt charging.

ha ha way to sneak that in there. anyways, i would start from the basics, check, tighten and clean your battery terminals. ive you have a volt meter check and see what voltage the battery is putting out.
