do you have power to the starter? if it had hardly any oil in it, was the motor making a lot of noise before it wouldn't start?

I would suspect if you drove the car with little to no oil, then the motor quite, you seized it. You may get it to turn over, and maybe even start after it cools down. I would suspect your engine is literally TOAST.
