SERPENTINE BELTS BROKE RIGHT AFTER STARTING THE CAR

Turned it off and replaced the belts and now the car won't start but is making a grinding noise when trying to start. Any Ideas? Started the car, put in drive, drove a few feet and the serpentine belts broke. I believe that only one actual broke but it got entangled with the other one causing it to break also. Replaced the belts and tried to crank the car. It will try to start but makes a grinding noise and will not actually turn over. Any Ideas?

Check your battery and starter. Most auto parts can check these for free
