Have the battery tested at your local shop or auto parts store that you purchased it from as a battery can fail at any time. If that checks out then check the battery cables for corrosion and make sure they are tight.

I would say the timing belt broke , thats my guess, thats the way mine broke , while driving , bingo it didn't want to start up and sounded like the battery was a bit low .
