    $\begingroup$ It's because you set the subdivision level of the NurbsPath object to 6. Never set it that high $\endgroup$ – Kidus Jul 9 '17 at 17:40

Use Outliner to select the object that causes this problem.

And avoid subdividing objects more than 4 times as this may be too much for your hardware.

Almost three million faces for such simple objects is a bit of an exaggeration, most likely it's beyond the limit of what your computer can handle.
