WHAT WOULD STOP THE CRANK SHAFT FROM TURNING ONLY ABOUT A QUARTER OF A REVOLUTION??

2004 Kia Optima • 100,000 miles

Replacing camshaft belt, camshaft sensor, timing belt(was missing teeth) car suddenly died but after taking apart the crank wont turn but a quarter turn either way with no belts attached and plugs pulled out. Maybe a little more then quarte turn but timing marks wont line up because it doesnt turn far enough. Also when put together it turns over to a certian point and stops. Savable or buy dynomite?

Pistons hitting valves. Internal damage from the belt. Will require major work and possibly replacing the motor.
