Sounds like your starter died. You will still have all electrical working but the starter just died. Might check the connections to the starter and double check the battery cables just in case something came loose.

that happend to me once and no its not the starter what could be is the two wires coming out from the positive post of the battery, check and move them, I did and my car started again...
