Do a compression check on the motor. If it seems to be turning over faster than it did before the timing belt break, you may have bent your valves in the machine head. With out fixing the valves and restoring compression the motor will not run.

    There is a sensor by the timing belt crankshaft pulley that may have been damaged by the timing belt breaking.

This depends on the engine code,but normally valves can collide with pistons, Time up the engine and put a belt on, remove spark plugs and turn the engine over by hand.if it turns over a couple of full revolutions without undue pressure I would then replace the plugs and try to start the engine, if it misfires or is noisy turn off immediately as internal damage has been likely to have been incurred, this will then require removal of the cylinder head, Regards Mike

Here is a link to a tip I wrote nate. It sounds like your timing belt slipped a tooth or ten. Or it may be broken. Does the starter motor seem like its turning the motor much faster than it normally does? You say that you can see the external drive belts turning, if this is true then your starter is engaging correctly. If your timing is off, or belt is broken, the engine will not make compression. Put your hand over the intake while someone cranks it to see if you feel that intake stroke pull on your hand. Read my tip in the link above for lots more info.

Engine won't turn over.

I'm afraid what you're describing sounds like your bearings went out. Your engine is probably seized up or blown. There is no cheap or easy fix for this problem, your engine will have to be rebuilt or replaced.
