Truck just grinds when I try to start it

When it was -30 degrees out, I started my truck and tried to jump start another vehicle. My truck died and now when I try to start it it just makes this grinding sound like vehicles make when you try to start them after they are already running. I'm thinking it might be the starter but I just got that 9 months ago. Any ideas?
