engine size? does this broken belt run any other pulleys? Also check other belts to be in good shape, may be a shot in the dark but have seen a few cases where the alternator froze up not letting the engine spin fast enough to start, You can try removing all accessory belts and check all pulleys to be sure they turn freely...Note there could also be something else going on as well...

Most likely belt damaged another componet. Have it towed to repair shop!
