Have you checked the battery and tried a jump start? If the fails, you could ahve a seized engine.

If a jump start works, you would need to check the charging system.
Don't replace the battery if it is weak. It could be the alternator that is faulty and not recharging the battery and providing sufficient current for the vehicle till the battery drains off and the engine stalled.
