Your engine won't start, and don't try to restart as you might do damage. Have it towed to a shop to diagnose.....http://www.ehow.com/how-does_4965922_what-happens-timing-belt-breaks.html

make sure that the shop replaces the timing belt PRIOR to diagnosis, or they will tell you it needs a new engine. A dealer will be a good alternative.
